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.
