Gazing at Mt. Fuji in the distance

Izu is one of Japan’s top hot springs areas.
Every day, fresh seafood is unloaded at the area’s numerous fishing ports.
The area has numerous facilities providing a sense of tradition and culture, as well as theme parks providing fun for families.
Please discover a new, relaxing attraction of Japan.


I was born in western Izu, and so I feel as if the whole of Izu is my hometown.
Even so, there are many things to see and do in Izu, and even now I make new discoveries every day.

Inatori-Onsen is famous for the Hina-no-tsurushikazari Matsuri (Dolls’ Festival). I especially recommend the tsurushi (hanging) doll decorations.
Not only are these decorations gorgeous and delightful, but they also have a wonderful background story.

I love things that are cute, things that are fun, the ocean and the mountains, and as you can see, delicious food.
Izu has all these things. It’s true!
If you are visiting Izu, please get off the train for a brief stop and fully enjoy the delights of Inatori-Onsen.
