Dogashima Loop + Tombolo Land Bridge 堂ヶ島 (Shizuoka Prefecture)


Dogashima is one of the most famous area on the Izu Peninsula and part of the Fuji-Izu-Hakone national park. Dogashima has interesting rock formations and if the weather is good you can take a boat into the sea cave. It is also home to a land bridge that appears during low-tide which is pretty cool.

Route/Trail notes

The hike follows a rocky pathway with a fence on the side. The first sight you will come across is the Kameishi (turtle rock). Rokc-hop down the rock for some cool views. From here, continue onwards past the rock into some coastal scrub. The path will take you up a staircase to where there is a viewing platform of the Tombolo land bridge. Continue past this and go down another staircase where you will find a sea cave that you can peak into. 

From the sea cave, walk towards the road and follow the path along the beach until you reach another carpark where you can walk down to the Tombolo land bridge and walk across the bridge to the nearby islands if it is low-tide. 

Follow the same path back.
