Iwo Jima, Japan Overview
Iwo Jima (“sulfur island”), is an island of the Japanese Volcano Islands chain south of the Ogasawara Islands and together with them form the Ogasawara Archipelago also known as the Bonin Islands.
The island has an approximate area of 21 km (8 sq mi). The most prominent feature is Mount Suribachi on the southern tip, a vent that is thought to be dormant and is 161 m (528 ft) high. Named after a Japanese grinding bowl, the summit of Mount Suribachi is the highest point on the island. Iwo Jima is unusually flat and featureless for a volcanic island. Suribachi is the only obvious volcanic feature, as it is only the resurgent dome (raised centre) of a larger submerged volcanic caldera.

F-18 touch-and-go on Iwo Jima
On May 16, 2014, F-18 fighter jets from Naval Air Facility Atsugi's Carrier Air Wing 5 conducted carrier landing practice on Japan's famed Iwo Jima island, now known as Iwo To. One of the reasons for using the remote island is because the noise the jets generate when flying at low levels is seen as a disturbance to most Japanese residents.
