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.
The Kadowaki Suspension Bridge is a 48-meter-long bridge up 23 meters in the air. It’s one of the definitive sightseeing locations of the Jogasaki Coast!
The bridge sways as people cross, making it a thrilling experience.
You can see an amazing view of the rough cliff faces from the surrounding rocks.
There are also walkways along the coast, the “Jogasaki Picnical Course” and “Jogasaki Nature Study Course,” that extend for a combined 9 kilometers. If you’re lucky, you might even encounter wild squirrels along the courses!
