Koibito Misaki (Lover's Cape)
Koibito Misaki (Lover's Cape) in west Izu is a scenic spot with a view of Mt. Fuji across the Suruga Bay. It was renamed to its current romantic title "Lover's Cape" because of the many tourists visiting this place due to a folklore that had been told about couples reconfirming their love by ringing the bell. The promenade leading to the cape is surrounded by nature and is ideal for a walk. Don't miss the "Love Call Bell" that is installed exactly as it seems to be mentioned in the folklore.

Promenade Leading to the Cape
From the entrance to the tip of Koibito Misaki is around 700 meters. A "board walk" with a nice wooden feel is installed so visitors can walk comfortably. Once you reach the end while looking at the greenery and the shimmering ocean, at one point, you will be greeted by a clear and marvelous view of the horizon.
Love Call Bell that Fulfills your Love
In the middle of the "board walk," the "love call bell" is installed. Try ringing it three times and then calling out the name of your significant other; it is said that this will lead your romance to be successful. Be careful not to miss it, as it is often confused with the "golden bell" at the tip of the cape.
