Fancy Living On An Active Volcano Island?

It may look like a criminal mastermind’s lair from a Bond film but this volcano island is very much real and can be found around 200 miles off the south coast of Japan. As of 2014, the tiny tropical volcanic crater was inhabited by just 170 people but was still home to a geothermal sauna, a primary school and even a post office! The island of Aogashima is so isolated that the only way to approach the crater is by boat, and even then there isn’t a recognised harbour. This would pose a major problem for most people but, if you live in a tropical paradise, why would you ever want to leave?
