You can also walk along the "Eternity Arch," which is said to be a place where you will be bound in eternal love if you hold hands and cross the entire arch. Why not propose after you have crossed the arch?

Zushi Beach is a beach that is characterized by its shallow waters and gentle waves. It is also a popular spot for beautiful sunsets, so if you are planning to do some proposing here, we recommend doing it in the evening.
If the weather is good, you can see Mount Fuji, the highest mountain in Japan, and the combination of the sunset and the sound of the waves creates a beautiful sight.
There are also restaurants in the area where you can enjoy views of Zushi Coast, so it would be a great place to propose.
