The Izu peninsula or Izu-hanto as it is known in Japanese, is a large mountainous peninsula with deeply indented coasts west of Tokyo. Sitting precariously on top of various tectonic earthquake plates, Izu is prone to frequent quakes. The upside of its geology is that there are abundant hot springs all around the peninsula and the Izu 7 Islands.
