Misakimachi Jogashima, Miura City, Kanagawa
Map of Jogashima

The island has been listed as a two-star destination in the revised third edition of Michelin Green Guide Japan. It has many scenic spots, with the southern hiking course offering views of the majestic Pacific Ocean and the strangely-shaped rock ‘Horseback Cave Mouth', while on the western part of the island, you can see views of Mt. Fuji over Sagami Bay. In addition, about 700,000 double-flowered daffodils planted all over the island are at their best from mid-January to early February.

The southern part of Joagashima features untouched nature. Jagged cliffs hang over the white and blue waves, creating a remarkable landscape. It is also home to hiking trails and is a dream site for hikers and photographers alike. On the south side of the island you can find Jogashima Park. The park has an observatory, a picnic area, and a 16-meter-tall green lighthouse with a vegetable motif, the Awasaki Lighthouse. The gorgeous cliffs make a perfect place for hiking and resting.

Travel tip

Jogashima is a wonderful place to visit at any time of the year. In particular, from mid-January to mid-February, approximately 700,000 double-layered daffodils are in full bloom. You can also observe the Japanese cormorant, which is designated a protected species by Kanagawa Prefecture.
