Haha-jima (母島, lit. "Mother Island") is the second-largest island of the Ogasawara Islands (also known as the Bonins or Volcano Islands) of Japan. It is about 21 sq km in area.


Inhabited before World War II, the Japanese government removed the locals and fortified the island; it was the target of several attacks by US forces during World War II.
