Sandy Shores of Iwa
This sandy beach is great for families and children to play in the sea. The beach lays in a cove and has small waves that gently lap the shore. The surrounding cliffs and growing pine trees make this a picturesque spot.
During the Tokugawa Shogunate (1603-1867) under orders from the Odawara Chief, over 150 thousand pine trees were planted for timber on the Manazuru Peninsula. However with the change of government this area became an imperially protected area. The citizens have been proactive and supportive of the protection of this forest for the wildlife and future generations.
