Cape Kamui, Shakotan-cho

Landmark Nature / Park
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.

  • So you guys are writing prior to arrival from what's that sound? The sound of the wind and think. Gates also blockade. But it is good to go, and there was. Views on the extension line during that drive the Shakotan Peninsula, with magnificent views of the sea, enjoyed the scenery, grand finale, that was. In the Park is well maintained and the inconvenience is not. Hopefully not disappoint their walk and landscape spreads out. Echizen coast, Japan Sea as something similar, but much more magnificent than that nature.
