Jogasaki Coast is the definitive view spot of Higashiizu, Shizuoka Prefecture. It is also part of the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park.
Jogasaki Coast is formed out of igneous rock from eruptions of Mt. Omuro around 4000 years ago. Over time, the ocean eroded portions of the rock away. Today, the Jogasaki Coast spans around 9 kilometers.
To get the best views of the coast, we recommend looking out over the ocean from the nearby suspension bridge or taking a tour boat to get a great view of the cliffs.
