About UMIGOMI Zero Week


Every year, the period from May 30th, “UMIGOMI Zero Day” to June 8th, “World Oceans Day” is called “UMIGOMI Zero Week” and various activities to help reduce marine litters are being held all over Japan.

Since 2020, collection boxes for marine littes and microplastics have been set up on the major beaches of Chichijima Island as part of the “UMIGOMI Zero Week” initiative.

We will set up boxes for collecting marine litters on four beaches of Chichijima Island this year as well, please help us collect marne litters when you go out or come to the island.

At the Ogasawara World Heritage Centre, collection bags will be distributed for free, please drop by if you need them.
