This coastline is easy to access view bus route from Ito station. There is a trail along the coast which is easy to walk and has many great sites. You can see the beautiful coast, the lighthouse, and walk across a suspension bridge all within a couple of hours.

Jogasaki Coast is on the eastern coast of Izu Peninsula & by the Pacific Ocean. There is a 9km walking trail that is very scenic. Many areas along the trail to stop for taking gorgeous photos. Kadowaki Lighthouse has a free observation deck with nice views of the ocean. A 50 meter high suspension bridge, Kadowaki Cape Suspension Bridge, takes you to some of the jagged cliffs. Definitely a terrific outdoor walking experience. Ample parking with a fee. Small souvenir shop, ice cream stand & convenient bathrooms by the lighthouse.

this review covers Jogasaki kaigan/coast and the suspension bridge+ lighthouse of Kadowakizaki :

I arrived at the stop which I was not too confident whether I have had alight correctly? I did not see any clear signage, however based on gut feel I just go along till I sense that I should be on the right track!

You will be all alone in the hiking trail (hardly anyone goes there on a weekday but that is good, I dislike touristy places) but your eyes are spoilt with beautiful scenes of Pacific Ocean that is not blocked by any architectural buildings, trees of all shapes and sizes especially beautiful pine trees and seasonal plants, insects and animals (if you could stop and observe), lava rock formations...

seeing the waves crashing can be quite therapeutic to some...

It has so much to offer ONLY if your heart is as vast as the ocean

You can sign up for kayaking,fishing or diving etc if time allows, or do a ferry-tour if you prefer not to walk.

While it is quite challenging (including climbing lighthouse for me to complete the hike within a span before the next bus will arrive

I would recommend at least a 2hour to explore the basics of this coast and the beach (take note of its limited bus timing), try to link here with your tour to Mt Omuro etc, Ito places too!

There is access to a tide pool at one point, but it's definitely "user beware"--there are rogue waves even at low tide. That said, it's an absolutely stunning coastal path. Some parts are fairly easy (usually close to access points near the train stations) while others are more challenging. There are spots where waves "boom" up through holes, there are slot canyons running to the sea, there's a waterfall, and there's a region of basalt columns, rather like the famous Irish Giant's Causeway. We've been here twice, and (along with the diving, which is much better than it's given credit for) this was our reason for returning. This year's photos are from a rainy day, but it's great, sun or rain. To do the whole thing safely and enjoy it, you'd need most of a day (there are a couple of spots with bathrooms, so it's doable). However, you can get to very nice bits within 20 minutes, and enjoy them reasonably in an hour or two. We did three separate walks of 2-4 hours each.

Breathtaking views, and you can see Yokohama from here. We loved everything here. But its quite dangerous to go there by yourself, make sure you have a local guide with you.

I recommend you spend a couple of hours at this lovely viewpoint. So pack a lunch, a beer and some yakitori . It's a short walk from the hwy and bus stop. Walk the trail down to the far end and explore the cliffs and drop-offs if you are a confident hiker/walker . - not for small kids or the elderly. Otherwise you can take the elevator down into the sea cave and watch the waves crash in. The elevator is expensive.
We didn't bother but enjoyed the trail down to the cliffs instead.
There is a small park with shrines just before the cliffs where you can rest in the shade on a bench and eat your packed lunch.
Highly recommend you visit the cliffs when there are large sea swells crashing into the cliffs...so don't be afraid to visit this spot when the weather isn't calm or nice......much more exciting when the waves are large.

This is a great nature hike, totally worth it if you're in the area and the weather's good.

There's actually two distinct sections to the walk. If you start at Jogasaki-Kaigan station it takes about 10-15 minutes walk along the road to reach the northern area, with a lighthouse and impressive suspension bridge. There's a cafe and carpark, and the walkways are mostly paved so good for kids or elderly. This area's nice and easy.

South of Izukaiyo Park things get a bit more rugged. The narrow trails wind up and down between the outcrops and it's largely rough stone steps. It's great for nature spotting - snakes, lizards, cats, spiders. Some of the geological formations are amazing too. It's about 5-6km from the park to the southern suspension bridge (took me just over an hour at a good speed) and it's pretty tiring by the end. You'll want hiking boots and a good supply of water.

At the southern end is another suspension bridge, some waterfalls and some tidal pools (which are accessible by some pretty steep stone steps). There's a car park at the south so you could just drive and miss out on the trek in the middle!

If you're walking south it's easy to get lost near the Renchaku-ji temple. It feels like you should follow the path to the sea which is actually a dive launch area. Instead follow the steep road up into the temple grounds and across.

Also look for the amazing ramen shop opposite Nagaya supermarket if you head back through Izukogen station.

I love the ocean, so loved this area, the water is a beautiful blue color. There is also a wonderful hiking trail along the coast, however, it is rocky and not for those with a knee or anyone with leg injury. It is an not an easy flat trail.

I was not meant to be here. I was chasing Hanami which landed me up at Izukogen station. Then I used TA to search the attractions nearby & found Jogasaki Coast. After Mt Omuro, I got lost & ended up at Ito. So, when a JR pass, I came back to Izukogen station and took a local bus to Jogasaki Coast. It was about 15:00 hours. But since I am in the vicinity, it made sense to spend time with Mother Nature.

To me, this coastal walk is even better than visiting Mt Omuro.
From the Kaiyo Koen Bus Stop, I took a hike along the jagged coastal line to Kadowaki Cape Lighthouse & Hanshiro Otoshi Suspension Bridge. The view was awesame and the air was so fresh. I saw pine trees, wild flowers, the expanse of the sea and powerful waves crashing onto the rocks.
I took my time to soak it all it. So spiritual.

The suspension bridge is not at all scary. When you look down, you can see the powerful waves. When you look out, you see the deep blue ocean.

Well, at the end of the trail, I ended up at Kadowaki carpark, and u can see dusk is round the corner. There was a taxi waiting. I didn't to risk waiting for the infrequent bus. So I hopped on to the taxi who brought me back to the Izukogen station for JPY1660. It was metered. But the aged driver must have done this route so many times that he can tell me the exact fare.

It was good. Spending time with Nature and letting an elderly driver earn some cab-fare.
