This cape is the most westerly cape of Wakayama Prefecture. The whole area is preserved as the Cape Hinomisaki Park in which the Cape Hinomisaki lighthouse is an ideal site for overlooking the Kisyu-nada (sea off the coast of Kishu) and the Pacific Ocean. In addition to taking in the Onarutobashi Bridge and Awajishima Island beyond the Kii Channel, the expansive view selected as one of Wakayama’s Top 100 Sites for Scenic Sunrises and Sunsets can be relished. With over 2,000 Yoshino and Yamazakura cherry trees planted here, one of the attractions is the beauty of the contrast seen in the delicate pink cherry blossoms against the dark ocean blue.

Wakayama prefecture unites pilgrims, food lovers, and culture buffs in a tranquil corner of Japan at the base of the Kii Peninsula. The setting for many a Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail, Wakayama invites those in search of spirituality from one side of the prefecture to the other, from the 100-plus Buddhist temples of the sacred Mount Koya in the west to the inspiring temples of the Kumano Sanzan set among breathtaking nature in the east. Once the grueling hike is complete, make a beeline for Wakayama city to savor some of the country’s most delicious ramen noodles.
