The eruption of Mt. Omuro resulted in a huge lava flow. Ito’s famous Jogasaki coast is the result. Our walk along the coast begins at a 400 year old fishing hut.

Mt. Omuro/Sakura no Sato: Ito’s most prominent geological feature is Mt. Omuro, a scoria cone volcano that erupted 4,000 years ago. Today, you can take a chair lift to the top of the volcano and walk around the rim.

To understand Japan, nothing is better than learning about life in a typical rural village. Our tour of the village Ike (ee-kay) is designed to introduce you to the fundmentals of Japanese culture.
