"Cape Irozaki is a cape at the southern end of the Izu Peninsula, in Minami-Izu Town, Kamo County. It features rugged coastal scenery jutting out into the Pacific Ocean. The extreme end of the cape has some of the most spectacular views in Minami-Izu, looking out towards Mikomoto Island, Yokone Island, and Ishitori Island, and the Irozaki Lighthouse has been included in the list of the ""Top 50 Most Beautiful Lighthouses in Japan."" Cape Irozaki also marks the boundary between the Pacific Ocean, to the east of the cape, and the Philippine Sea, to the west. The Iro Shrine, which is one of several geo-parks on the Izu Peninsula, can also be visited here."

Shizuoka Main Areas
With the giant Pacific Ocean to the south and the great Mount Fuji to the north, Shizuoka prefecture is blessed with some of the best views the country has to offer. The white sand beaches of the Izu Peninsula are a rare find on mainland Japan, neighbored by beautiful cliffs, tumbling hills, and natural hot springs. As Japan's largest producer of green tea, the age-old tradition of tea drinking is ubiquitous in Shizuoka, from the miles of tea fields to the old tea houses hosting traditional tea ceremonies.
