Toji Sand Skiing Ground

Muko

Dec 8, 2016

Every now and then, I indulge in an ‘extreme’ sport called sand skiing. There is a sand ski ground in Toji, about 20 minutes away from Izukyu-Shimoda station. I like coming here because entrance is free.

You can rent sleds to ski, but I prefer to bring my own sled or big cardboard. It’s quite tiring to climb up the sand hill, which is a 35° slope, but the thrilling ride down towards the sea in front is worth it!

The surrounding scenery of the sea and mountains are very beautiful. However, please don’t admire it when sliding as it can be dangerous. If you don't control the speed of your sled with your feet properly, you might end up on the stone shore between the sand hill and the sea.

Many local children play here, but please do not imitate them, as they are the experts of this sport. Watch a video

伊豆急下田駅から車で約20分、田牛(Touji)エリアにあるサンドスキー場。

入場・利用料無料の自然のアトラクション。
約35度という急こう配の砂山を自身の足でのぼり、すぐ目の前の海をめがけて
ソリに乗って漕ぎ出す。

ソリは、近くの民宿でレンタル可能(約500円)。
自信での持ち込みもOK、段ボールですべるのもOK。

360°山と海に囲まれた景観は圧巻であるが、滑るときは景色に見とれてはいけない。
高い場所から勢いよく滑り出すと、砂山と海の間にある石浜にダイブしてしまう。
つまり、自分の足でスピードをコントロールする必要がある。

ここには地元の子供たちが多く遊んでいるが、彼らはエクストリーム上級者である。
観光客の皆様に置かれては、ビギナーとして慎重に遊んでいただきたい。 ビデオを見る
