Kadowakizaki suspension bridge with the lighthouse in the background

The Jogasaki Coast (郖C, Jōgasaki Kaigan) is a beautiful section of coastline along the Izu Peninsula's eastern coast. It is located in the Izu Kogen area, about ten kilometers south of central Ito. An attractive hiking trail follows the coast for almost ten kilometers, offering beautiful views of the jagged cliffs and stone formations that hug the coast. It is also possible to walk shorter sections of the trail.

The most popular section of the hiking trail is located around the 23 meter long and 48 meter high Kadowakizaki Suspension Bridge. Not far from the bridge stands also a lighthouse with a freely accessible observation deck from where visitors can view the beautiful coastline and Oshima Island when visibility allows. A parking lot is located near the suspension bridge and at a couple of other points along the trail.
