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.
It was a wonderful stay. The service was great and the views from our room was amazing. It was really cool to have a private onsen in your room to enjoy whenever you wanted to relax. We were able to watch the skies change as the sunrise/sunset from our onsen and that was so fun. Their public outdoor ...
We stayed on the first floor. Great view of the sea and a lovely outdoor deck. Rooms are big too. Hotel on the whole is clean and well kept but is starting to show signs of age.
The area it locates at is beautiful. The facilities are good and i specifically recommend the hot spring in the cave. View from hotel is nice, the only thing you have to be cautious of is the restaurants nearby close before 6 in winter.
An amazing resort. Everything was perfect from the spotless and gorgeous room, the private onsen in our room, the property and spectacular food. The service was world class and the staff were attentive to our every whim. My wife and I are hard to please and are prioritizing a trip back to Tofuya. ...
