What Kamui Cape made so popular is a spectacular view looking over from the cape dynamically shooting out into the open sea. There is a trail to reach the tip of the cape from the parking, what is called “a path of Charenka”.  You will see a great view of the blue ocean walking throught the path.

A vast expanse of sea ahead of the cape

You can delight the magnificent view of the Sea of Japan and untouched natural landscape. You can look out over 300-degree view from the path, so that you are able to scan seemingly a little bit rounded horizon.

When you look down the coast from the tip of the cape, you will find a big rock called “Kamui Rock”. That rock is said to an embodiment of a girl standing under the crystal clear water.
