Futou

Futou is the scenic point of Nishi-Izu. This site can be reach via beach entry or boat entry. There is a small area where you can go night diving all year round. There are caves, caverns, and arches as you progress through the shallow beach sand to the rocky terrain.

Nudibranchs can be seen all year round, but spring is the best time to see them in quantity and variety. Stingrays, flatworms, and sharks abound in the sand, and in the spring, the spawning of blue squids can be seen.
