The Bonin Islands, also known as the Ogasawara Islands are an archipelago of over 30 subtropical and tropical islands, some 1,000 kilometres (540 nmi; 620 mi) directly south of Tokyo, Japan. The name "Bonin Islands" comes from the Japanese word bunin (an archaic reading of 無人 mujin), meaning "no people" or "uninhabited". The only inhabited islands of the group are Chichijima, the seat of the municipal government, and Hahajima, which includes Ogasawara Village.

Following World War II, the islands were controlled by the United States Navy, which expelled all residents except those descended from the original settlers and/or related to them by marriage,[28] while allowing the return of pre-war inhabitants of White American or European, Micronesian or Polynesian ancestry.[29] The islands were returned to Japanese control in 1968, after which other Japanese citizens were allowed to return.
