This magnificent cape dominated by a lighthouse since the early 20C attracts many hikers. Those energetic enough to scale the 163 steps to the top of the 44m/144ft-high tower will be rewarded with a stunning panoramic view of the Sea of Japan and in clear weather, the Oki Islands. On the left, a 1km/0.6mi-trail leads to the harbour that is home to the four-centuries-old Hino-misaki shrine.
