- "Here sits a little island in the middle of the ocean... This place is all yours. It just needs a name!"
- — Tutorial, Tomodachi Life
The Island is the main location in Tomodachi Collection and Tomodachi Life. The player is the owner of it, and therefore can name the island upon starting the game. The island cannot be renamed in Tomodachi Collection. It is inhabited by Miis. They can be put in the game through transferring them from a Wii in Tomodachi Collection, making them from scratch in both games, or using ones made on a Nintendo 3DS system and scanning QR codes in Tomodachi Life. In Tomodachi Life, when it is December, the music when you are overlooking the island changes to a Christmass-esque version of the theme, but there is no Christmas version for night.
The islands consist of a large island, and a small one beside it. At the beginning of the game, only Mii Apartments are available. However, as time progresses, more buildings eventually appear.
