Observe the earth from a spot where it actually looks round at Cape Chikyu and ring a bell for happiness. Voted the most beautiful scene in Japan, this favorite tourist spot attracts both locals and foreigners year-round, displaying nature at its best. A white octagonal-shape lighthouse and an observatory built at 147 m (482 ft) above the sea level gives the opportunity to take photos overlooking the bay. Listen to sheer force of waves endlessly smashing against rocks and watch the panorama overlooking the bay. You can also watch for dolphins and whales across the Uchiura Bay.

  • Views of Pacific Ocean from the Cape Observatory. As the name suggests it looks round earth. If you're lucky with the weather looks like whales. Parking there is a certain number of minutes to go during the flooding, such as Sunrise is normally parked.

  • Overlooking the sea and around the white Lighthouse is beautiful. Lighthouse personnel lived long ago became the residence is vacant. From their mind want to try up or what the view from the lighthouse, but I can't go to the lighthouse. No quaint monuments like the stainless steel ties and ring a Bell with a couple on the other hand, Bell is not in feeling cheap.

Middle Cape have from gone and passed, finally arrived. Asphalt construction the Observatory tried hard ring a Bell of happiness first. I wonder where reach! Cloudy weather sky horizon line is blurry, I don't know the roundness of the Earth. But why would come. Observatory, go equipped with a little at a time. Thorn any change the next time you look forward to. This is the 4th time...
