Miura Peninsula - in Kanagawa Prefecture
Date of Seaside Hiking : 19.08.07
Notes from Me :
- An hour from the frentic bustle of Tokyo lies some of Japan's most tranquil and scenic spots just waiting to be explored.
- Every city dweller needs an escape route to the serenity of nature.
- The decision to go to Miura Peninsula was long pending and at last it was materialized on 19.08.07.
- This place is reached by “The Keihin Kyuko Line “ ( from Shinagawa ) and its associated branches serve most areas, with JR Yokosuka Line an alternative in some cases.
- Miura, the part of Kanagawa Prefecture to the south of Tokyo juts out into pacific Ocean and, together with the Boso Peninsula, forms Tokyo Bay. The last remnants of untouched forest and coast on this otherwise heavily populated peninsula provide probably the greatest range of walking country close to Tokyo, from seaside stroll to mountain ascent, and are excellent for the less adventurous walker.
- Course : Miura- Kaigan Station ( by bus ) to Togari . From Togari to Cape Tsurugi Light house , an extended hiking.
- Walking time : About 3 hours.
- Points of interest : Rugged coastline and sea views., Cape Tsurugi Light house ,caves, and seaweed cultivation.
