Cape Erimo, Erimo-cho
(3.9/5 based on 130 reviews on the web)
On the blustery Cape Erimo, the wind blows at an average of 36 kph (22.4 mph), 290 days of the year. This gives the rugged landscape a striking and desolate appearance, making for great photo opportunities. Located where the Hidaka mountains finally descend into the ocean, you'll find the point's modest lighthouse, which stands at the top of towering cliffs. You'll also find a viewpoint at the end of a spine of land, which looks out over rocky outcrops in the ocean. Bring along your binoculars to observe gulls and seals basking on the rocks below. The cape also houses a wind museum, where you can discover weather data collected from around the world, and also experience what wind traveling at 145 kph (90 mph) feels like at a dedicated facility.
