Horikiri Pass, Miyazaki

(140 reviews on the web)
Lookout Tourist Spot
Make a stop at Horikiri Pass during your coastal drive to admire breathtaking views of the shore and ocean. Take a break at the road station, with amenities and snacks available, including some wacky ice cream flavors (shrimp anyone?), and enjoy a beautiful ocean panorama. Observe unusual rock formations on the beach, extending to the ocean floor, then pan back to see lofty palm trees and verdant hillsides. Be sure to bring your camera and a pair of binoculars, which will help you spot the local birds of prey in flight. Use our Miyazaki vacation builder to arrange your visit to Horikiri Pass and other attractions in Miyazaki.
