Jogasaki Coast Walking Tour

Jogasaki Coast - Izu Peninsula

One of the best sight seeing spots in Japan, the Izu Peninsula’s Jogasaki Coast is part of the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park.

This leisurely tour includes about a 1 kilometer walk along a beautiful coastal trail with views of Sagami Bay and the Izu islands. History, native plants, geology, and ocean breezes make this our most popular tour.

 

About the tour

Our walk will begin near Boranaya, an ancient fishing hut built around 400 years ago. As we walk south along the Jogasaki Coast Picnical Course, we will learn about local history and culture, plants and wildlife, and see amazing views of the Sagami Bay and the Izu-Oshima islands.

We’ll get an up close look at the incredible lava formations from nearby Mt. Omuro that created this coastline 4,000 years ago.

At the end of the tour, we’ll discover examples of popular music and local folklore based on this famous coastal trail.

The Jogasaki Coastal walk is a truly unique Izu experience!
