Okinotorishima (沖ノ鳥島 ?) is an atoll, which in English has multiple designations (Okinotori coral reefs, Okinotori Islands). It was formerly called Parece Vela Spanish for "it looks like a sail" (alluding to the original appearance of the reef). It is located at 20°25′N 136°05′E / 20.417°N 136.083°E / 20.417; 136.083Coordinates: 20°25′N 136°05′E / 20.417°N 136.083°E / 20.417; 136.083, 534 km (332 miles) SE of Oki Daitō and 567 km (352 miles) WSW of Minami Iwo Jima of the Ogasawara Islands or 1740 km (1081 miles) south of Tokyo, Japan. The Japanese meaning of the name is "remote bird islands" and they are sometimes referred to as "the southernmost islands of Japan."
After concrete encasing, each of the islets appears as a circle with a diameter of 60 meters (about 200 ft) on detailed satellite images, which would correspond to a land area - albeit mostly artificial - of 2827 m2 (0.7 acres) per islet, or 8482 m2 (2.1 acres) in total. In addition, there is a platform on stilts in the shallow part of the lagoon 140 meters (460 ft) ENE of the southern islet, built by the Japan Marine Science and Technology Center in 1988, which appears as a rectangle of 100 m by 50 m (330 ft by 165 ft). The platform has a helicopter landing pad and a large three-story building with marine investigation facility and a meteorological station.
