Nanbara Coast of Permian Rocks 南原千畳岩海岸

Okago, Hachijo-machi, Hachijo-jima, Tokyo

A unique volcanic landscape by the sea

Nambara Coast of Permian Rocks is a plateau of black volcanic rock by the seaside near Izu. The sprawling black bad of cooled lava is 500 meters long and 100 meters wide. It offers a truly otherworldly appearance, all with the ocean on the horizon.

You can hike on the black rock and admire its natural patterns. There are also statues of historical figures Ukita Hideya and Gohime. It is especially popular in the evenings because of its spectacular sunsets. It also offers views of nearby Hachijo-kojima Island.
