Jogasaki Scenic Coastal Trek

2016 June 12 (Sunday)

Izu Kogen, Shizouka

Spend the day hiking along the spectacular Jogasaki coastline. This is a 10km trek over a dramatic landscape formed by lava flows. There are beautiful views of the jagged cliffs and stone formations hug the coastline. There will be a chance for a swim, or lazying about on the rocks, or a dip in the tide pool. Finish the day at a nice local outdoor onsen.

This trip features:

  • A guided trek along the stunning Izu/Jogasaki coastline.
  • Two suspension bridges (The Kadowakizaki bridge is 23m long and 48m high)
  • A small lighthouse where on a clear day you can see all the way to Oshima
  • A chance to end the trek with a dip in the sea and rock/cliff jumping
  • A cool outdoor onsen with free mud masks (until mud supplies last)
  • Chance to meet a fun group of outdoor people

Amazing day to enjoy nature where the bush meets the sea.
