Atami Station 

[Irozaki Cape]

Fill up on the impressive power of nature, then take a walk around the nearby spots

With its steep rocky cliffs, Irozaki Cape is a scenic location where you can enjoy truly spectacular nature. Alight at the "Irozakikoguchi" bus stop and follow the walking path for about 20 minutes, and you will arrive at the southernmost point of the Izu Peninsula. There are more highlights to be found dotted around the cape area. Among these are Irozaki Lighthouse (selected as one of the 50 Lighthouses of Japan by the Japan Coast Guard) and Iro-jinja Shrine, nestled into the rocky cliff. You can enjoy a cliff walk while drinking in a panoramic view of the ocean. With Irozaki Ocean Park due to open in spring 2019 on the hilltop on Irozaki Cape, this is a tourist spot that looks set to attract a lot more attention.
Posted photos If you venture all the way out to the very tip of Irozaki Cape, you can enjoy the thrill of walking along the edge of a cliff.
