    Located in the Izu Geopark.
    On a clear day, you can see Izu Oshima in the distance.
    The scenery of nature is worth seeing. There is also a small suspension bridge, which will be a fun experience for children.

    I enjoyed the dunes on a mild winter day. So it was easy and comfortable to hike up and take in the beautiful scenery that includes the sea. Simply breathtaking

    Tojinbo Cliffs were amazing. You can walk around on the cliffs themselves and there are some great places for pictures. There are also some nice walking paths so you can get a little exercise while enjoying the view.

    Beautiful works of art, interesting and fun. When planning your visit, take into account that the weather forecast is taken down in the valley, while the museum is located (beautifully!) on the mountain top. So... the temperatures are lower and the wind is stronger at the top. It was cold and windy in May. Also, on cloudy days you won't be able to enjoy the beautiful scenary.
    Young children can also enjoy the museum.

    Easy walking in an unusual environment, and provided you are OK with the sulphur you will enjoy a trip to this area of natural phenomena. The five year old in our party found it very exciting and the adults were enchanted

    Located in Tateyama, Chiba Prefecture.
    It is a wonderful place along the coast line and acts like an extension to the mainland. The place offers brilliant views during the evenings and especially during the sunset.

    Tateiwa is a rare geological basalt column on the Japanese Sea. It rests along two beaches with swimming areas but also is where the Takeno River feeds into the sea. It's an impressive rock, and local folklore tells about a demon or ogre trapped by a prince within the rock.
    The area is quite beautiful, with a small walking path, and stairs leading up to some old 6th century burial mounds. There is camping, a roadside station, as well as quite good restaurants within walking distance, but the area is definitely best accessed with a car. It is not convenient to get to by bus and there is no train station in this town. It doesn't take long to explore the area (if you aren't staying to go to the beach), but it's a nice stop for pictures.

    Going back up north from Kushimoto you pass these breathtaking rock view. Definitely worth a stop. There's a small shop with local products. Good to get some souvenirs or snacks. It depends on the tide, but I could walk up to the rocks.

    The Oni no Sentakuita or the Devil's washboard is visibly seen during low tide. However, you can still see some of it most of the time. The locals said that the unusual rock formation is similar to the washboard used during the old times. You may want to go around the island and you will also see the Aoshima Lighthouse.

    A "single chairlift" hauled me up the slope at a leisurely pace. 750 yen (return) was a lot cheaper than most lifts around the world. The dragonflies hitched lifts and kept me company. The crater was clouded over but since it was just 22'C at the top it was 30'C at Zao and 35'C in Yamagata City.

    Usually many people visit Kurobe Gorge after completing Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route if you begin at Ogizawa station ending at Tateyama station. Kurobe Gorge can be done as a day trip but I stayed a night at Hotel Kurobe than hit the Gorge in the morning. You begin with riding the Toroko train with different class of carriages to choose from. I enjoyed the cheaper type that’s without window as the weather was nice and cool in October. However, you will see more vibrant autumn colors from November taking note that Kurobe Gorge usually is closed from 30 November and reopen in mid or end April. Take the train right to the last station to enjoy beautiful scenery than visit places you are interested later. You will find small eating places at some stops and please give it a try as they are quite unique. I do recommend visiting Kurobe Gorge.

    Was a fun time, not going to lie but whether it resembles an elephant or part of male body is your view. The shops and toilet are recently refurbished and are very good, loved the okinawa doughnuts stall and the ramen was very good. Had a good time and will be back in future :)
