[Sunset in Nishi-Izu Town]

Everything turns to gold under the beautiful sunset of Nishi-Izu Town

Nishi-Izu Town was selected as one of "Japan's 100 best sunset vantage points” by a private organization, and is a popular spot from where beautiful sunsets can be viewed. There are more than 10 spots for beautiful sunset scenery dotted around the area, for example, overlooking Suruga Bay from the Nishi-Amagi Highlands which are located 750 m above sea level; southward along the coast from the shallow and calm Crystal Beach toward Koganesaki; Otago Beach; Dogashima, and the mouth of Nishina River. The magnificent landscape of the shining ocean illuminated by the ever-changing colors of the sunset and the islands that emerge from it as though they were silhouettes is filled with such natural beauty that your mind feels cleansed.
