This scenic spot in Nishi-Izu Town has been selected as one of Japan's best 100 sunsets. From the shore, visitors can enjoy watching the setting sun turn unusual rock formations like Tago-jima Island and Meganeccho (also known as Godzilla Rock) into dark silhouettes. This place is also beloved by many people for the way the sun sets between Otokojima and Onnajima (the male and female islets that make up Tago-jima island) during the days before and after the spring and autumn equinoxes.

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.
