Habuminato is a small port town on the southeastern coast of Oshima. It was built around 200 years ago, and its quaint streets and gorgeous ocean views offer you a chance to step back in time. This small village was the inspiration for Yasunari Kawabata's novel "The Dancing Girl of Izu" and the popular folk song "Habu no Minato."
Stroll the winding streets and alleyways of Habuminato and enjoy the little shops selling freshly caught seafood, potato croquettes, sweets and other goods. While in Habuminato, drop into the Odoriko Sato Museum, which is devoted to the famous dancing girls of years past; Kyujinomaru Tei, a historic estate that was once home to the local fishermen's union; and an observation deck that offers spectacular ocean views.
