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.

  • Please see walk on their feet. From the entrance until the tip of the Cape takes about 30 minutes. A hot day, please bring hat and drinking water. We recommend good walking shoes. Landscape changes every time you walk. Product Dan blue is impressive. Wind, solar, and natural feel.

  • In winter, the Cape area grocery aisle just closed in this period, but you can visit the surrounding area. Good value for money. Beautiful blue water. Nice wonderful views
