Unlike Western-style accommodations, this traditional-style ryokan for 2 boasts distinct features such as a tatami room with roll-up futons for bedding, a low table and legless chairs, an en-suite lavatory and bathroom, sliding paper doors, and a Japanese-style veranda with extra seating.
For extra context, the tatami is an indoor flooring peculiar to Japan that comprises rice stalks that are dried into straw and then tightly woven into thick mats that cover the entire floor space of a room. Traditionally, it has been well-loved for its moisture-wicking and insulation properties.
Given the volcanic and geological attributes of its location, The Oceanview is home to its very own private onsen hidden within its basement and only guests at The Oceanview are allowed access to its soothing, mineral-rich waters.
Featuring 9 traditional ryokan rooms, The Oceanview comfortably accommodates up to 18 pax at a given time. What’s more? The Oceanview also prides itself as a pet-friendly inn – a bonus not many other lodging options within the district are able to offer.
Many great restaurants as well as other establishments such as convenience stores are only a stone’s throw away from The Oceanview, and some of the attractions close by include the magnificent coastline, as well as many hot springs and religious shrines.
Perched atop the hills of Akazawa about 300 metres above sea level, The Oceanview is situated in a secluded region on the eastern coast of Izu and is only a short bus ride away from the Izukogen train station.

Nature surely takes centre stage in Izu, but not many are aware that the small peninsula also houses a whopping number of museums – over 20 to be exact. There are, of course, the classics, but what really draws people in are the bizarre museums that top the quirky scale for sure.
The fresh water of the Kawazu River surges down the Amagi mountain range through a series of 7 wondrous waterfalls of varying drops, and with it comes a fantastic walking trail by the river that runs through the forest.
Founded by monumental Japanese monk Kobo Daishi in the 9th century, the Shuzenji Temple sits on a small hill and may look absolutely tranquil, but what it conceals is a grim and turbulent history involving power struggles and bad blood within a family.
Spring is inarguably the most loved season in Japan thanks to its world-renowned Japanese cherry blossoms or sakura, which blooms beautifully at this time of the year. In the Izu Peninsula though, sakura season gets an early head start compared to the rest of Japan.
The Jogasaki Coast is an exquisite 9-kilometre segment of the Izu Peninsula coastline with a wonderful hiking trail that offers incredible views of the Pacific Ocean, jagged cliffs and stone structures that border the coast.
