Miura Coast

Posted by

I always go to Izu Penninsula, but actually there are three peninsulas nearby Tokyo: Izu(Shizuoka Prefecture), Miura(Kanagawa Prefecture) and Boso(Chiba Prefecture).

This time I went to Miura Peninsula.

There is an interesting thing that almost every tourism spot is managed by a train company such as Hakone by Odakyu, Mont. Fuji Fuji Express. Keikyu is an dominant transport giant throughout Miura Peninsula.

You can buy a 1 day or 2 day free pass across Miura Peninsula just near entrance of Keikyu Shinagawa Station. That saved me a lot of money.

Then about 1 hour’s train I arrived Miurakaigan Station. Walking 3 mins from the station we see the beach and sea.

There are many families coming here to play and rest on the beach.

There are a few surfers who keep practising skills.

Kids love playing with sand to make a castle, etc.

Then we took a bus to Aburatsubo Keikyu Marine Park. The park is small but the show program is well designed and performed with a theme “ghost”.

You can see lovely dolphins and penguins.

The speech is in Japanese but you can feel the emotion by heart, right?

Izu Peninsula is bigger but farther as it takes you more than 2 hours even by shinkansen. If you want a flexible weekend Miura Peninsula is a good choice for who live in Tokyo.
