Popular tourist destinations, such as Atami hot springs and Izu Plateau, can also be found in eastern Shizuoka prefecture.
Many tourists visit the Izu area and spend time at one of the many resort hotels to enjoy the various tourist attractions, cafes and hot springs.
In this article we'll introduce the Kadowaki suspension bridge, a popular tourist destination in the Izu area.

As you can see from 6:20 in the video, the Kadowaki suspension bridge hangs from two cliff faces making it a thrilling experience to cross!
You can also enjoy a stunning view of Kaiyo Park from the bridge and the surrounding area.

The Jogasaki Coast (城ヶ崎海岸, jougasakikaigan) was formed from the lava of an eruption which took place over 4,000 years ago at Mt. Omuro (大室山, oomuroyama), one of the volcanos in the Izu-Tobu volcano range (伊豆東部火山郡, izutoubukazangun).
The corrosion caused by the lava created a sea cave known as "Hanshiro otoshi" (半四郎落し).
The Kadowaki suspension bridge, which hangs between this sea cave and Kadowaki cape, is 48 meters in length and 23 meters high.
The Kadowaki suspension bridge is also referred to as the Jogasaki suspension bridge, as it hangs above the Jogasaki Coast in Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park (富士箱根伊豆国立公園, fujihakoneizukokuritsukouen).

There is a walking course nearby called "Jogasaki Pikkunikaru Course." It's popular with dog-walkers and hikers.
A variety of fish can be caught at the nearby Futo Harbour (富戸漁港, futogyokou) and Uomigoya (魚見小屋, uomigoya).
We highly recommend trying some fresh seafood dishes at the nearby restaurant Boranaya (ぼら納屋) as well!

There is another bridge with a great view in the Jogasaki Coastal area, called the Hashidate Suspension Bridge (橋立吊橋, hashidatetsuribashi).
If you're visiting the area, we recommend crossing both bridges.
