Winter’s Atami Sea Fireworks DisplayRead Later
Atami Bay, which is surrounded by mountains on three sides, acts acoustically like a stadium for this fireworks display. As the air is dryer in the winter, the fireworks stand out even more beautifully!
There are many sights to see at this display, including the annual tradition fireworks finale, “Niagara Falls in the Sky.”
Jogasaki CoastRead Later
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.
