Dogashima堂ヶ島

Other Sightseeing Spot

"Dogashima is a famous scenic spot in Nishiizu Town, Kamo County. There are a number of tourist attractions in the area, including the Sanshiro Islands - comprising Zo-jima, Nakano-shima, and Taka-shima-and the Tensodo sea-cave, which has been designated a National Natural Monument. Sightseeing cruise boats operate throughout the year; visitors can look up at the sky through the opening in the roof of the Tensodo sea-cave (also known as the ""Blue Cave""), which was created by sea erosion of tuff (a type of rock formed from volcanic ash), and can also view the tombolo phenomenon, a narrow strip of land that links Zo-jima (traditionally known as Denbei-jima, this is the closest of the Sanshiro Islands to the Izu Peninsula) to the mainland at low tide. This area is also famous as the setting for the tragic love legend of Izu no Sanshiro and Koyuki."

          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.
