Kawana, a part of Ito city in Shizuokka prefecture, is located 100 km away from Tokyo. Limited express train "Odoriko-go" takes you to Ito station for 1 hour 45 minutes from Tokyo station. Trains run along the sea coast, and the scenery from the windows is excellent. We recommend to escape from busy Tokyo and enjoy golf at Kawana Golf Club against blue Pacific ocean, Mt.Fuji, Izu-Oshima and Hatushima Islands, much cooler temperatures by wind from sea compared to Tokyo cosmopolitan area. The city and Izu peninsula are filled with many hotels, traditional Japanese inn, hot springs, fresh seafood, tourist attraction spots and more.
