Izu Nagaoka, Nirayama and Ohito hot springs

●Izu Nagaoka Hot Spring


Kona Hot Spring with 1,300 years of history and Nagaoka Hot Spring discovered about 100 years ago are collectively called Izu Nagaoka Hot Spring. Its drinkable simple alkaline spring water is clear and odorless and said to be effective to cure muscle fatigue and gastrointestinal disorders while producing beautiful skin. Kano River enables fishing in mountain streams and Mt. Katsuragi provides views of Mt. Fuji and Suruga Bay. Such unvarnished nature ultimately relaxes visitors.

Reverberatory Furnace

Sole reverberatory furnace existing in the world

Reverberatory Furnace

At the end of the Edo period, the daikan (Bakufu representative) Egawa Hidetatsu (Tannan) started the construction and his son Hidetoshi completed the furnace. A reverberatory furnace was used to melt metal and cast artilleries. This is the only reverberatory furnace in the world that has a look of that time. The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry accredited this furnace as a Heritage of Industrial Modernization, on November 30, 2007.

Egawatei Residence

Important cultural property

Egawatei Residence

The beginning of Egawatei goes back about 850 years ago. The residence was originally built in Nirayama, Izu, by Uno Chikanobu, the sixth generation of the Uno family, in 1160’s. Afterwards, the family name was changed to Egawa and the family head was appointed as the hereditary Bakufu representative governing the Izu, Suruga, Sagami, Musashi and Kai areas under direct control of the Edo shogunate. Egawatei Residence was a magistrate’s office where the Egawa family resided. The residence was designated as a nationally important cultural property in 1958 due to its massive architecture and incomparable historical value. In addition, the area around the residence was registered as a national historic site in September 2004.

Orange picking

Osaka Orange Cooperative Farm

Orange picking

This orange picking farm exists in the Osaka area of Izunokuni. Bred mandarin oranges are popular as they are very sweet and extremely early in maturity. The farm contains a large car park where motor coaches are accepted. Wheelchair-accessible paths are prepared in some areas, where orange trees are trimmed to allow them to bear fruit at lower places. Visitors also enjoy homemade konnyaku (devil’s tongue jelly) and a treasure hunting game to find cards in the orange trees.
