Jogashima Park

Jogashima Park

Miura

Jogashima Park occupies the eastern half of Jogashima, located at the southernmost tip of Miura Peninsula. When you pass through the forest in the park, you will come across a unique prarie landscape. As this area was created due to the strong winds that blow from the Pacific Ocean and the strong sun, most of the plants are unable to grow tall. For this reason, black pine is grown in the inland areas of the island to avoid the strong winds.

Travel tip

Bird lovers should visit the park between November and April when the Japanese cormorant, a protected species, nests on the island. There is an excellent view of the bird sanctuary along a hiking trail on the southern side of the island.
