Yumigahama Beach

Reviewed By Redtrail - Kootenays, British Columbia

We took the local bus from Shimoda to this beach. We had been to the east coast of the pennisula the day before and there was a fairly heavy surf. Here the beach was perfectly quiet with just a gentle swell splashing on the shore. Although it was early May the water was very nice for swimming - at least for Canadians. It was a beautiful warm sunny day but there were never more than about a dozen people on the beach. The only other person who was in the water was a little Japanese boy of about 10 who was in there when we got there and still in there when we left!
We popped into the restaurant in the little complex just above the beach for some green tea icecream. I was sorry I wasn't hungry as the seafood looked and smelled sensational.

Hirizo Beach

Reviewed By Rpopoloski11

Last summer, I visited Japan and was lucky enough to have relatives who live there and own cars. We took a weekend trip to Izu to visit the beach and go snorkeling. The beach at Tamarindo is beautiful and clean. Hirizo beach is very rocky and not meant for sun-bathing. The rocky beach was definitely offset by the tropical sea life that can be easily seen as soon as you enter the water. We saw so many tropical bright fish, eels, sea urchins, and even a small shark that showed itself for a split second in the deeper water. I recommend going on a week day when it might not be as crowded. This was my second time going there. I also went 3 years ago and it was less crowded the first time. I think that more and more people are finding out about this place. It was still definitely worth fighting the crowd and I plan on going back again the next time I am in Japan!!!

日野(ひんの)の交差点前に菜の花畑が一面に広がります。南伊豆は、2月中旬から始まる桜まつりに続いてこの菜の花です。目の覚めるような見事な花畑です。車で通りながら見るのもいいですが、ちょっと足を止めたくなるほどの美しさです。専用の駐車場はないので、ここの目の前や交差点手前にコンビニやお食事処がいくつかありますので、利用がてら見学に足を運ぶといいです。何しろ田んぼの有効利用として花畑になったところですので。

Aono River Cherry Blossoms

Reviewed By FranciscoCFJ

Izu peninsula became one of my favorite spots in Japan. A good chance for people visiting the country at late winter to contemplate cherry trees. It is highly recommended to go by car as bus access across the places in the peninsula is limited. Wonderful coastline. We went back to Tokyo along the west coast around sun set time and the view is astonishing.

河津桜は車でもバスでも電車でもほどほどの距離で楽しめる場所ですが、もっと奥まったみなみの桜は同時期に菜の花まつりを開催します。日中はもちろん、夜景は最高で、河津に負けてません。自然を満喫できるのどかな場所でお勧めです。毎年2月中旬に開催していますが、2018年を待たずして桜は少しずつ咲き始めています。新年から見頃かもしれません。2月まで持ちこたえられるか心配ですが、何度か訪れるのもいいかもしれません。

何年ぶりかで行きましたがマイクロバスでサルのいる場所に案内されました。以前は徒歩でした。サルを見るだけで700円は高いと思います。
だからか以前に比べるとかなり空いていました。海岸は海の色がとても澄んでいてきれいです。感動しました。

弓ヶ浜の宿から朝食前にタライ岬遊歩道を通り日の出を見に行きました。片道約2Km、写真を撮りながら約1時間半歩きました。逢ヶ浜から先はほとんど人が通らないと思われる山道を歩いてタライ岬に着きました。タライ岬からは下田の先の爪木崎から石廊崎まで南伊豆の海岸線が一望出来ます。天気が良ければ伊豆諸島の島々も望めるようです。日の出もなかなか綺麗でした。

石廊崎から少し西側へ行くと、ビジターセンターの建物がある駐車場があります。このあたりが奥石廊海岸で、荒々しい岩場の海岸が広がっています。この下あたりが夏に人気のヒリゾ浜です。駐車場は高台にあるので眺めはとてもいいです。天気がいいときは夕陽に照らされてとてもきれいな眺めになります。
