The Izu Skyline (伊豆スカイライン) is a 40 kilometer stretch of traffic light-free highway that begins near Atami and winds its way over the mountains to end mid-way down the peninsula. The road is typically less busy than the coastal roads, and on a clear day Mount Fuji can be seen from the various parking areas and viewpoints. In the south the road transfers onto route 111 which leads on to the Jogasaki Coast. The Izu Skyline is a toll road and the prices can be found here.
