Attractions in Western Izu (Nishi Izu Area ) - Area C
The area C has lovely little beaches along the rias coastline, having Bonsai-like tiny islands covered with pine trees. From the headlands there, it allows visitors to enjoy a distant view of Mt.Fuji or the sun set across the water on a clear, sunny day. Walking trails are provided along the coastline with scenic views, that would be a 2- or 3-hour stroll.
Since the public transport available in this area is only buses, much fewer people visit this area compared to the area A. In addition, there are many inns (Minshuku) which offer a hot spring and a fresh seafood dinner/breakfast at very reasonable rates.
