Geocache Description:


This is the fourth CITO (Cache In Trash Out) in Shikenejima Island,
Japan. Shikinejima island is a small island (3.9 km^2) located
about 150km far from Tokyo bay. Shikinejima hosted CITOs three
times in past years and they were very successful by involving
local children who supported Geocachers. Currently the island holds
more than 20 geocaches and they are “officially”
admitted by Society of Industry and Commerce of the island. Thus,
the island welcomes all geocachers, who can freely enjoy geocaching
all over the island. This time, CITO is further enjoyable because
high-performers will be "awarded" with some gifts based on their
achievements. The event will be commenced at Development Center of
the island, at 13:00 on 19th of November (Saturday). Thus, all
participants should gather at the Center before the time. The
participants will be grouped with local children, who also help
collecting litters and maybe teach you short-cuts to the points!!
To the island, there are some transports. The budget-concerned
travelers, a normal ferry starting in the night of Friday is the
best, while a jet-ferry is also available from Tokyo bay. A rapid
travel to the island is also good by using a airplane, which
departs from Chofu Airport in Tokyo, which will land on the
neighboring Niijima Island and you take a ship "Nishiki" to reach
Shikinejima island in 10 minutes. Anyway, if you need a help,
please contact our staff. (contact address is below.) A Sun-set BBQ
party for Geocachers and local islanders will be held in the
previous day and the day of the event. This event is also suitable
for families. If you need a help, you can contact AGENSI (an
organization under the Society of Industry and Commerce of the
island). Please visit the following site. (visit link)

第四回CITOイベント in 式根島

すでに秋の式根島の定番イベントとなりました、CITO(Cache In Trash Out)イベントが今年も式根島で実施されます。
式根島は、東京から南西約150km浮かぶ小さな島(3.9平方キロメートル、人口600人)です。式根島ではすでに3回の
CITOイベントが開催され、地元の子供たちの積極的な参加もあり、盛り上がりました。この島には20のキャッシュがあり、
しかもそのすべてが地域の商工会によって、正式に認められています。つまり、この島ではジオキャッシャーを大歓迎!!
こそこそせずに、思う存分に島の宝探しを楽しめます。

今回のCITOイベントでは、参加者チームの達成度により、順位が決定しますのでがんばってください。
イベント日は、11月19日(土曜日)。時間は、13時00分(午後1時)。場所は、前回と同様に、島の開発総合センターにて。
今回も島の子供たちといくつかのグループに分かれてもらいます。子供たちはゴミ拾いの手伝い、そしてもしかしたら
近道など地元の情報を教えてくれるかもしれません!!

島への交通手段はいくつかあります。一番リーズナブルなのは、東京の桟橋から前日の夜に出港する東海汽船のフェリーです。
一夜をフェリーでゆっくりと過ごすのもいいですね。また、少し余裕のある方は、ジェットフェリーであれば、2時間半
ぐらいで島に到着します。さらに、ささっと、島に到着したい方や、上空からのすばらしい景色を楽しみたい方は、高めですが
調布空港から出る飛行機を利用し新島経由で一日3便の連絡船「にしき」を使い、来島もできます。

イベントの後に簡単な親睦会&飲み会などがあるので、興味がある方は是非。
島の人たちとの交流を通じて、小さい島の文化を味わってください。
またお子さん連れも歓迎します。イベントページは以下ですので、適宜ご参考にしてください。
それではお待ちしております。
