There are many scenic spots (a national park, the coast of West-Izu, and so on) in the area, and Dogashima is a representative scenic spot of West-Izu. “Tensodo” and “Sanshiro-Island” is especially famous in Dogashima.
Come aboard our Geosite Cruise, and you’ll also be able to visit the Izu Peninsula Geopark. The Izu Peninsula Geopark is a registered UNESCO Global Geopark. Until several hundred years ago, what is now Dogashima was located on the ocean floor.The underwater volcano located nearby caused the pumice and volcanic ash that had accumulated on the ocean floor to protrude upwards, creating the white cliff.Enjoy a unique view of the geosite from the ocean, with striped geological formations eroded by underwater volcano eruptions and ocean currents, rock veins formed by cooled and hardened magma (volcanic roots), columnar joints, and more.
A thrilling course that takes you to a complex ria coast (coastal inlet), snaking around the small islands that dot the ocean, and finally to the mystical cave. The course is peppered with attractions, from the Sanshiro Islands, known for the path that appears during low tide, and that allows you to walk to the islands, and Tensodo Cave, the “blue” cave with the beautiful light that comes in through the skylight, and more.
