Atami Station 

[Jikkoku Pass]

A historic place with stunning scenery loved by many celebrities

Jikkoku Pass once overlooked 10 provinces including Izu, Kai, and Shinano, and so it came to be called Jikkoku (10 provinces). Jikkoku Pass currently overlooks the areas now known as Shizuoka, Yamanashi, Kanagawa, Tokyo, Saitama, and Chiba. With good weather, you can view an indescribably beautiful landscape from the summit. Since ancient times, Jikkoku Pass has been famous as a spot for viewing Mt. Fuji, and has appeared in the works of famous authors like Katai Tayama, Akiko Yosano, and Osamu Dazai. With easy access to the summit by cable car, you can enjoy a stroll at the top while taking in the magnificent view.
