This sightseeing spot with a variety of natural landmarks is 25 minutes by car from JR Kesennuma Station. Various fossils have been discovered there dating from the Paleozoic era's Permian period 250 million years ago. It's been designated a Miyagi Prefecture Natural Monument. At the end of the cape there is a blowhole formed by sea water erosion over the eons. It spouts the surf into the air every time they break on the rocks, and when the waves are high, the site is truly impressive. There is also a tree called the Dragon Pine that gained its current dragon-like form from the tsunami after the Great East Japan Earthquake. The statue of the sumo grand champion Hidenoyama Raigoro also survived the tsunami and you can still see it today.
