Mountains, islands, the ocean and the glorious sky!
A spectacular 360° panorama!
At 580m above sea level, Mt. Omuro is one of the largest volcanoes of the Izu Monogenetic Volcano Group. It was formed after a large volcanic eruption around 4,000 years ago, at the beginning of the Late Jomon Period (2470–500 BCE). The flood of lava from this eruption also created the nearby Jogasaki Coastline. Mt. Omuro’s smooth, conical shape makes it a wonderful landmark for passing ships, and it has long been believed that a gentle and caring god is enshrined within the mountain.
The crater at the summit of the mountain is around 300m across, with a circumference of 1000m and a depth of 70m.
The path around the crater offers 360° panoramic views of the surrounding landscape, including Ito City, the Izu Islands and Mt. Amagi. On clear days, you can even see Mt. Fuji and the Southern Japanese Alps!
Take the lift to the summit and see the spectacular views from the top, or give archery a try in the volcanic crater. There’s so many things to do!
Sister mountain of Mt. Fuji, Mt. Omuro has been worshipped as a sacred mountain since ancient times. A visit to Mt. Omuro is not just a chance to experience the region, but a chance to feel the history of Japan.
