Wakasu means "Young province" in Japanese.
Wakasu, like many other areas of Tokyo, is reclaimed land. Save for the camping ground, Wakasu was constructed on a base of trash, a form of land reclamation common in Japan.
Roughly half of the island is an industrial zone, while the other half contains the Wakasu Seaside Park Wakasu Golf Course and a popular camping ground. There is also a large wind turbine located nearby the golf course. The 18-hole golf course and the campground attract many people from all over Tokyo.
Wakasu was planned to be the venue for sailing events at the 2020 Summer Olympics., but as of 2015[update] it is planned that the yachting will take place in Enoshima, Kanagawa Prefecture. Instead it will host Golf moved from Kasumigaseki, Saitama as planned venue.
