Jogasaki Coast Walking Tour

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. As we walk along the coastal trail, we’ll see magnificent lava formations and unique coastal plant life, learn about Japan’s defensive reaction to Western encroachment, get close up views of the Izu islands, and end at the famous Kadowaki Suspension Bridge and tower.

The Jogasaki Coast is one of Izu’s most cherished destinations for residents of Tokyo and Yokohama. Get off the beaten track and visit this beautiful stretch of coastline and discover a hidden gem.
