Want your own private island? We visited one for sale off the coast of Japan

posted on October 25, 2015

Who wouldn't want to have their own private island? Imagine being able to get away from the world whenever you liked, free yourself from the stress of the daily grind and just relax under the sun or the nighttime stars on the beach.

Well the best place to start looking for such a private island is Japan. There are lots of small uninhabited islands owned by real estate companies that you can buy one almost as easily as you'd buy a house.

We recently visited one such island for sale to see what it was like and decide whether we should start saving up our pennies to buy one ourselves-after all, Rocket Island has quite a nice ring to it. Read on to see what our trip there was like, and to see some of the surprises that we ran into.

The island that we visited is Ainoshima (Indigo Island) off Higashihiroshima City in Hiroshima Prefecture. This island is going for the low, low price of 400 million yen (US$3,300,000), and the only way to get to it is via a 10-minute trip by sea taxi.
