Cape Kamui, Shakotan-cho

(4.7/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
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. A visit to Cape Kamui represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Shakotan-cho travel itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

  • From the parking lot to the tip of the Cape Observatory, narrow undulating roads and stairs to walk 20 to 30 minutes, but can feel the farthest summer, nice place, worth. Great views along the way, so please enjoy a stroll. Across the Cape sea on both sides in the weather left at the wrong time.

  • Look photos just Sea Cape Kamui-Shakotan here said that Hokkaido sea and Japan Sea of gray image but not tropical resort with comparable beauty. This sea is seen in Hokkaido! Kamui promontory access cars or buses but not so little inconvenience, but can recommend spots. Equipped with walking. And takes about 20 minutes each way. Holiday in the way people can't pass smoothly, so have enough time!

  • From Otaru near 2 hours by car. It is where you are going to end up spending half a day is kinda far from worth it. From the parking area to the tip of the Cape, walking slowly 20 minutes. In the meantime, as far as there are many great views. Shakotan blue product that's really beautiful. Is hard, but never do.
