Hi there!

Yes - the Ogasawara islands are very real :) All are accessible by either Ferry or helicopter. You can find more information on how to get there here.

I personally recommend Chichijima and Hachijojima, but you can find out more on each islands tourism information site.

The main thing to be wary of is the weather! The islands are very exposed and can be subject to tropical storms. Also, be aware that there are no JR services on these islands :)

Hope this helps!
