  • Many tourists come here in the summer after the harsh winter. View over the peninsula from the sea, rather than see the Cape in the land is the best. On the coast you can see the decline of several waterfalls on sheer rock, Japanese Cormorant number of feathers flock together. Where on the coast where "see also fishermen repairing nets.
