Your Local Connection in Izu
伊豆へよこそ！ Izu e yokoso!
Welcome to Izu!
The enchanting Izu Peninsula – a destination loved by residents of the Tokyo-Yokohama region, but relatively undiscovered by foreign travelers. Slightly off the beaten path, but an easy side trip between Tokyo and Kyoto, Izu is the most diverse part of Japan’s Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park.
Don’t they always tell you to, “Go where the locals go”? If you’re seeking an escape from the overcrowded cities and a chance to immerse yourself in Japan’s scenic beauty, rich culture, and warm hospitality, then Izu is the perfect destination for you.
The Izu Peninsula was designated a “Geopark” by the United Nations Ecucational, Scientific and Cultural Organization in 2018. Izu was formed by a series of volcanoes that crashed into the Japanese mainland over thousands of years. The result is some of the most unique and and beautiful scenery in the country.
Breathtaking scenery, pivotal history, unparalleled geography, and diverse culture make Izu a ‘must visit’ destination for those looking to understand ‘the real Japan.’
