Kozushima Island’s highest point, Mt. Tenjyo, offers impressive views alongside a collection of volcanic lakes and abundant wildflowers that bloom throughout the year. At a height of just 500 meters, you can reach the ridge in under an hour.
Along the way you’ll encounter volcanic terrain that has gradually overgrown with alpine foliage. At the top is a lookout point with gorgeous views across other islands in the Izu chain. Further trails explore the crater, meadows, and various ponds, so you can extend your adventure to an entire afternoon if desired.
Some 170 kilometers off the coast of Tokyo, Kozushima Island features many attractions, from snorkeling to cliff jumping. Consider a trip to Akasaki Promenade after your hike to cool down in the crystal-clear waters.
