Arubi Island (或美島, Arubi Shima?) is a tourist destination located in the Philippine Sea south of Tengu City. The island is midway in-between the Izu archipelago and the Ogasawara islands. The area of ​​Arubi Island is around 70 square kilometers. The events of Volume 5 of the light novel transpire here.


30 years ago, the natural shape of the island was destroyed by Spacequakes, or rather, the northern part of the island was completely erased as if scraped out. Therefore, the shape of the coast resembles a crescent moon. Recently, the northern part of Arubi was redeveloped into a new tourist attraction. This area was also very well equipped with powerful Spacequake warning systems, which were not inferior to those implemented in Tengu City. The unusual shape of the island and beach attracted tourists not only from Japan, but also from all over the world. However, the threat of Spacequakes caused many casualties in the past, and the island's native population continued to decline.


During the events of Yamai Tempest, DEM used their connections to a tourist agency to change Shido's class trip from Okinawa to this location. After arriving here, Shido first met the Yamai sisters and then sealed them.
