Review of Akao Lookout

We had a walk up the cliff overlooking the sea and rocks. How beautifull it was! Its easily accessible by car too.

The views were amazing! I felt so energized walking around here. Good for a solo hike or going with friends, but definitely take your time to enjoy all the different views and angles of the rock...

          What Shimane prefecture lacks in size and population, it makes up for in scenery and ancient mythology. Izumo-taisha, in the middle of the prefecture, is said to be Japan's oldest Shinto shrine, where stories that delve into the creation of the Japanese race have been passed down over centuries. The 180 Oki Islands, a 40-minute ferry ride north of Sakaiminato, offer an undiscovered paradise well off the beaten track.
