Cape Kamui, Shakotan-cho

#1 of 13 in Things to do in Shakotan-cho
Observe nature’s sculptures at their best from Cape Kamui a 100-200 m (328-656 ft) high coastal terrace spearheading into the ocean on Hokkaido’s Shakotan Peninsula. Strange vertical limestone formations springing from the azure sea reward hikers, after a 25-minute scenic walk on planks to reach the cape. The short, hilly trek through a maze of well-maintained trails, with many wooden observation decks, provides gorgeous scenery and excellent photo opportunities. You can also see the remnants of a World War II communication bunker tower en route. When you arrive, try dried scallops and other shellfish in the shop on the cape, which sits a 90-minute drive from Sapporo.

  • It seems to be a woman prohibition in old times, the scenery is good, but it walks considerably I should go with sneakers I gave up on the way I wanted to see the scenery ahead

  • It is a little tight terrain for people with weak pushing hips. The person who pokes the cane thinks that courage to give up by the weather is also important! I think that even the elderly can take a leisurely stroll if it takes one hour round trip. Don't forget to drink when the sun is hard!!
