Miura City is located in the southeastern part of the Miura Peninsula and is known for its seaside resorts. In addition to beautiful beaches, Miura boasts the Kawazu Sakura Festival held annually from early February until early March.

The row of Kawazu sakura trees is located a short 8-minute walk away from Miura Kaigan Station along the Keikyu Line near Komatsugaike Park.

I was simply impressed with the sushi! Every bite tasted delicious. And it's incredible what a variety of flavors can tuna have! I warmly recommend dining at Kaisen when visiting Miura.

Their jam line-up is impressive. In addition to fruit jams made with apples, kiwi, strawberry, yuzu citrus, and others, they even have tomato or carrot jam!

The jars of pickles are also very colorful and appealing; every piece of vegetable is cut by hand.

If you get off at the Jogashima bus stop, you reach the famous Jogashima Lighthouse on foot in a few minutes.

The western part of the island is connected to the eastern part through a 1.2 km hiking course along the southern shore. This trail is easy to walk, flanked by greenery, and full of scenic views that include bizarre rock formations.

One of these spectacular rock formations carved by the wind and the waves is Umanose Domon, or the Horseback Cave. You'll have to descend some stairs in order to reach it but it's definitely worth the hike!

In early February, the way toward the eastern side of the island is flanked with daffodils. Jogashima is famous for its daffodils and even hosts a festival to celebrate them. These flowers fill the air with their sweet fragrance.

You'll be walking while listening to the sounds of the waves and of seagulls. Jogashima is a very tranquil place where you can feel connected to nature.

Even more beautiful daffodils await on the eastern side of Jogashima Island. I suggest exploring the park freely and climbing into the observation platforms to see the ocean. To the north, you'll see the Misaki Port, while the Boso Peninsula is visible to the east.
