Mt. Omuro is a gently-sloped volcano on the Amagi mountain side. A crater of 300m in diameter and 70m deep is located at the summit. A tourist climbing lift operates from the foot of the mountain so that visitors can enjoy the panoramic view of the Izu seven islands, Mount Fuji, Hakone and the mountains of Amagi from the summit. Izu Shaboten Park and Sakura-no-Sato are located at the foot of the mountain. Every year on the 2nd Sunday of February, a famous event called Yamayaki (burning the mountain) is performed.
