The Saphir

Izu is rich in authentic attractions, including places of natural, cultural and historical interest. Easily accessed from the capital, it is one of the foremost destinations in Japan for pleasure trips with family or friends.

Admire the changing scenery through the windows and immerse yourself in elegance even while you travel. Enjoy the real Izu with the SAPHIR ODORIKO.

SAPHIR is the French word for sapphire. We decided on this name because we wanted to evoke the sparkling, bright sapphire blue of Izu’s ocean and sky, and add a touch of high-class luxury to your journey.
