The Izu Cactus Park (伊豆シャボテン公園, Izu Shaboten Kōen) is a mixture between botanical and zoological garden. It is located besides the strikingly shaped, grass covered Mount Omuro, an extinct volcano near central Ito on the Izu Peninsula.

More than one thousand cactus varieties from around the world are exhibited in the park's greenhouses, while animals living there include birds, rodents and monkeys. In addition, there are chimpanzee and dog shows held several times a day.

Cacti at the Cactus Park


Take a bus from Ito Station (about 40 minutes, 710 yen one way, 2 buses/hour) or Izu Kogen Station (about 20 minutes, 360 yen one way, 2 buses/hour) in direction of for Shaboten Koen (シャボテン公園) and get off at the final stop from where it is a short walk up the hill to the Cactus Park.

Tokai Bus offers two different 1-day passes for Ito: one for 800 yen that covers Izu Kogen and the Jogasaki Coast, and one for 1300 yen that additionally includes central Ito. The trip to Mount Omuro from Izu Kogen Station is fully covered by both passes, but the trip from Ito Station is only covered by the more expensive one.
