Cape Kamui, Shakotan-cho

4.7
#1 of 8 in Things to do in Shakotan-cho
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.

  • We rented a car in Otaru and drove to this place. It was quite a scenic drive along the coastline and no traffic at Shakotan area. Please note that the gps navigation screen in the rental is in Japane...  more »
  • The view was beautiful. The walk up the cape was easy. It was mostly visited by locals. If you love nature, Cape Kamui is definitely worth visiting.  more »
  • On the road at the very tip of Cape Kamui is in the Middle door and winds will be closed to traffic. Because of the sea behind is very blue and I wanted to go to the tip of the Cape come so bad but the really strong wind will give up. At the Cape, even turned to easy hiking trails and from there transferred 10 minutes is a beautiful sea.
