Cape Spots in Yamaguchi Area

  • Bisha-no-Hana
    Travel / Tourism
    Yamaguchi Pref. Shimonosekishi Yoshimo Ozaki
    This cape of the westernmost part of Honshu in Shimonoseki City has a 500ーmeter promenade with an observation deck, which you can use to look over the expansive ocean and islands. Many tourists come to see the lighthouse of the northernmost part of the Seto Inland Sea near the cape, as well as the 1,000-year-old Kawatana no Kusu no Mori (a single camphor tree that looks like a forest).
  • Ryugu no Shiofuki (The Dragon Spout)
    Travel / Tourism
    Yamaguchi Pref. Nagatoshi Yuyatsuou
    A National Natural Monument and Place of Scenic Beauty located in Yuyatsuo, Nagato City, Yamaguchi Prefecture. When the wind blows from the north and makes the seas here choppy, the waves are pushed into a small hole in the cliff face one meter tall and 20 centimeters wide, causing water to shoot into the air like a Spout. The Spout can reach heights of up to 30 meters, creating a powerful spectacle resembling a dragon shooting into the sky. A path, covered with 123 red torii gates, leads from the Spout up a hill to Motonosumi Inari Shrine. This area is popular in part because of the gorgeous scenery created by the contrast of the torii gates and the ocean.
  • Susa Hornfels
    Travel / Tourism
    Yamaguchi Hagi-shi Susa
    "This is a small bay on the Sea of Japan in Hagi. One of the main sights of the Kita-Nagato Kaigan Quasi-National Park, this area is also a national Place of Scenic Beauty and a registered Natural Monument. The interior of the bay features a quiet, spreading inlet, while outside there are towering cliff faces, for truly impressive scenery. This landscape was shaped by volcanic activity in the time of dinosaurs, and you can see ""byobu iwa"" screen rocks, the layers of earth that first piled on the Sea of Japan, and hornfels formed by the action of magma melting layers of gabbro rock, all of which you can see from a local fishing boat piloted by a working fisherman."

Heading west along Japan's largest island, Honshu, the very last prefecture you'll reach is Yamaguchi, separated from Kyushu by a small strip of water known as the Kanmon Straits, which the far-reaching harbor city Shimonoseki looks over. With water at every turn, the seafood of Yamaguchi is an indisputable highlight, and we're not talking just the usual fish dishes - the notorious fugu, or puffer fish, is a Japanese delicacy that was discovered in Yamaguchi prefecture, making it the best place to try it out.
