This seems like a perfect setting for either a children’s adventure movie… or a horror flick.
Aogashima (“blue island”) is a tropical, volcanic island in the Phillipine Sea. Despite being over 200 miles away from the country’s capital, Aogashima is governed by Tokyo. […] As of this year, only about 200 people live on Aogashima. The island only has one post office and one school. There are two ways on and off the island: by helicopter or by boat.
