Discovering Izu Peninsula: Kawazu (河津町)
Kawazu is located in the East Part of Izu Peninsula, Shizuoka Prefecture. Kawazu is well known for Sakura,
since it blooms earlier than other places. It takes approximately 3 hours from Tokyo Station.
You can try to take the limited express train called “Odoriko(踊り子))”.
It gives you a special view outside on the way to Izu.
