Overview

Izu Peninsula is the only area in "Honshu" island Japan, located on the Philippine Sea Plate. The peninsula was erected after clusters of volcanic islands and their northward movement, including those caves and cliffs where waves eroded rocks over time. You can also recall the days when Commodore Matthew C. Perry and Townsend Harris, who opened the first US Consulate, were around.

What to Expect

Please appreciate the views across the open ocean with steep cliffs, and small islands comprising "Izu Seven" volcanic islands.
You can also come to know a story about a Japanese woman named "O-ki-chi-san" who'd attended to Mr. Townsend Harris and the
role of temples played at the time. Pleasse bring your pedometers with you.
