Jogasaki Coast Walking Tour
Category: Izu Favorites
Formed by the lava flow from Mt Omuro, the Jogasaki coastline is one of Izu's most popular destinations. Memorialized in music, literature and countless photographs, this stretch of Ito's coast is rich in nature, history, and amazing views.
About the tour
Our walk will begin near Boranaya, an ancient fishing hut dating from 1626. We will walk south along the Jogasaki Picnical Course, and end at the Okuno-In Temple. Along the way we will get an up close look at the incredible lava formations from nearby Mt. Omuro that created the coastline 4,000 years ago.
We’ll learn about the various marine and terrestrial plants, including isogiku, a flower made famous by the tragic legend of a local couple.
We’ll see historical monuments reflecting a time when Japan feared invasion from foreign powers.
In addition to the unique geology, history, and ocean air, you’ll also take in panoramic views of the Izu Islands just off to the east in the Sagami Bay.
The Jogasaki Coastal walk is a truly unique Izu experience!
