Getting There

城ヶ崎海岸沿いを散策するコースです。海の音を聞きながら、城ヶ崎の美しい森を通り抜ける素晴らしいトレイルです。またコースには見晴らしの良い場所が数カ所あります。門脇灯台は混みますが、一見の価値ありの展望スポットです。

出発駅である城ヶ崎海岸にはコンビニエンスストアが近くにありません。伊豆高原駅周辺にしか店がありません。 途中に灯台、美しいニューヨークランプミュージアム&フラワーガーデンがあります(リフレッシュできます)。

伊豆急行の電車でこのコースに来れますが、費用がかかるため、1日もしくは2日以上滞在することをお勧めします。 伊豆エリアには他にもハイキングコースがあり、旅程に追加できます。

I only wish I gave myself more time to spend on this trail!  This trail is easy and shorter in length as recorded. However, if you are adventurous and sure-footed, there are plenty of opportunities to explore different side paths leading to rocky scrambles, hidden outlooks, and tranquil tidepools. I started from the south because of proximity to the train station. There is a bus stop close to the northern end of the trail, but you need to get the timing right. The southern end of the trail features the iconic suspension bridge, and is significantly busier than the northern end. In the gorge below the bridge were many rock climbers all geared up scaling the cliffs.  Also on the southern end there is an easy access to some tidepools, if you're okay with steep steps of natural rock. There are other opportunities throughout, but they are less human-friendly. Dozens of fishermen could be seen along the coast, casting off the rocky edges just above the water. Even when the ocean is out of sight, the crashing waves remain in earshot. There are plaques throughout the hike in Japanese and English explaining the geologic history of the Jogasaki coast, adding some context to the hike. The violent volcanic rock alongside the soft forest and steady ocean waves makes this hike unforgettable.

It was an amazing trail with the sound of the ocean and walking through the forest. Easy hike for beginners like me! Make sure to carry enough water to last the trail .

This was the first trail I tried suggested by the AllTrails app and I loved it. It was easy to do (I did it in a sunny December day), has beautiful sights along the way and it’s well marked both in Japanese and in English.

Beautiful coastal trail. We did it as an out and back, but there is a train station near each end, so you could do it one way. Lots of up and down. We stopped at the waterfall for lunch and it was a perfect spot for a break.

Would recommend this trail to anyone looking for amazing views without too much physical difficulty. Hardest bits are walking to and from the station. I would suggest starting at izukogen station so you leave the lighthouse until the end of the hike. Very unique and pretty scenery with lots of places to go to the bottom of the cliffs. Easily one of my favourite hikes!

A beautiful picturesque trail along the eastern Izu coastline. Several spectacular ocean views and the pounding being surf was impressive. Interesting things to see - like a light house and suspension bridge. Very well marked in both Japanese and English. Hiked on a sunny day in late January. Had the trail all to myself. Hardly passed another soul along the way. Love my time there.

First to Review

Excellent hiking experience. I suggest starting from Futo Station and ended Izokogen Station. Trail is well marked in English and Japanese, trains were pretty easy to navigate from Yokosuka.
