Jukoku Pass It is said that the Jukoku Pass got its name because it saw ten countries (Izu, Sagami, Suruga, Totoumi, Kai, Awa, Kazusa, Shimousa, Musashi, Shinano and Goto< Oshima, Niijima, Kozushima, Miyakejima, and Toshima >). From the top of Mt. Nichikane, you can see Mt. Fuji to the north, Suruga Bay to the west, and Sagami Bay to the east. It seems that there have been many people who have tried to paint this vision with a paintbrush for a long time, but it is said that they could not stand the size and beauty of this project. There is a cable car ride to the top of the mountain and back. It is about one and a half hours from Himenosawa Park, and you can also visit it by trekking while enjoying nature. Azaleas are in full bloom in spring, a cool breeze blows in summer, ripple pampas grass ears flutter in autumn, and warm plateau sunshine welcomes you in winter. * "Dog Run in the Sky" has resumed on November 11, 2023!

Ishibe Rice Terraces are located in the town of Matsuzaki, Shizuoka Prefecture, located at the western tip of the Izu Peninsula. The 370-sheet, 4.2-hectare rice paddies spread over an altitude of 120~250m are masonry terraced rice paddies that are rare in eastern Japan. It is a terraced rice field with a superb view overlooking Suruga Bay below, and on a clear day, you can see Mt. Fuji and the Southern Alps. In 2000 (Heisei 12), the 4.2 ha terraced rice fields that had been abandoned for cultivation and covered with thatch were regenerated and used as a starting point for village revitalization. In 2010 (Heisei 22), the "16th National Terraced Rice Fields (Senmaida) Summit" was held.

I took the Enoden from Kamakura Station and walked around Enoshima. At the end of the day, be impressed by the view of the Shonan Sea dyed in the sunset and Mt. Fuji! Nearby beaches such as Shichirigahama and Yuigahama are crowded with surfers, and many people are equipped with hooks to hook surfboards on bicycles and scooters. I got a train on Enoshima Electric Railway from Kamakura and walked around Enoshima island. At end of the day, you can enjoy beautiful twilight sight of Mt. Fuji and sea of Shounan (Southern Kanagawa). Many people enjoy surfing at Shichirigahama or Yuigahama beach and they equip luggage hook on their bicycle or scooter.
