Koganezaki Park (黄金崎公園, Koganezaki-kōen) is a nature park on the western coastline of Izu Peninsula famous for its sunsets and viewpoints from which Mount Fuji can be seen on a clear day. The park is also famous for Horse Rock (馬ロック), a rock with a straight diagonal ridge and small patch of vegetation on the top which looks—with a bit of imagination—like the head of a horse.
