Jogasaki coast or Cape Irozaki?

Last updated

I'm planning to go on a day trip to Izu Peninsula from Shinjuku. Points of interest I would like to see/do in Izu are: Jogasaki coast, Cape Irozaki and Shimoda ropeway. As I am just going for a day, would it be feasible to see all 3 in a day? Given that travelling time from Shinjuku should be about 2-3 hours based on my research. If not, would people recommend Cape Irozaki or Jogasaki coast? Thanks!

Going to Jogasaki coast and Cape Irozaki both on a day seems pretty busy schedule. It becomes more realistic if you can drive. If you need to use public transportations, necessary time doubles. It seems like you need approximately 2 hours from Jogasaki coast to Cape Irozaki by public transportation. 
I have never been to Cape Irozaki but Jogasaki coast was very beautiful. I spent few hours walking the coast and taking pictures. ;)

Thanks for your advice! I guess I will have to choose one out of the two then :)

Hope your travel to Izu will be an awesome one! If you have a time, stay a night in a Onsen Ryokan. Izu has many nice onsen facilities!
