Take a trip to the Izu Peninsula, south of Tokyo, and discover dramatic scenery, quiet seaside towns and hot springs. Whether you’re visiting for a resort experience or to learn about the local history, the Izu Peninsula is sure to provide plenty of relaxation.
For decades the Izu Peninsula has been a popular weekend escape for the people of Tokyo, but recent resort development and Japan’s high-speed rail system has now opened the Izu region to the world.
Visit the coastal town of Toi to learn about the region’s legacy of gold mining. Spend an afternoon looking through historical displays at the Toi Kinzan, a museum dedicated to the industry. Visit the original Toi Gold Mine nearby and tour sections of the long tunnel that winds beneath the town. Don’t miss the chance to try your hand at panning for gold.
Toi has a reputation as a quiet beach town but while it is more remote than many of the bigger tourist destinations on the peninsula, the bold landscapes that surround the town are worth the travel time. Bathe at Toi Beach as you admire the views of Mount Fuji, the tallest mountain in Japan, or walk beneath drooping cherry trees when you visit the Anrakuji Temple.
Hire a car or motorbike and explore the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park which dominates most of the peninsula. High peaks and green valleys are dotted with small onsen (traditional Japanese hot springs). Unwind after a day of exploring and let the thermal waters remove all the stress from your muscles.
The Izu Peninsula is located approximately 130 kilometres (80 miles) from the center of Tokyo and can be reached by car, train or bus. The eastern coast is well connected by the JR Rail network; however, those wanting to reach Toi and the west coast may prefer the independence offered by hiring a car. The region is particularly beautiful in early April when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom.
This is one of the best places I’ve ever stayed! The service was the best.. we barely spoke any Japanese and they were still so helpful. The extra amenities of umbrellas, public baths, and restaurant were great. It also helped that the room itself was spectacular: a mix between western and traditional ...
The location was amazing, but services lacked human effort. I had already mentioned in the requests while booking that I'll be in my last trimester of pregnancy, despite: 1. As we entered room, the beds were separated, and when requested if they can be joined, the person asked us for an extra fees ...
Beautiful location and easy to find. English is very limited but the staff will help you.
Great location and view from the room. Beaches five minutes away by car in one direction. City ten minutes away by foot in the other direction.
