Cape Ashizuri

Carpeted by sub-tropical plants, Cape Ashizuri is tucked away on the southernmost point of Shikoku and boasts some seriously impressive 80-meter-high cliffs with incredible views of the deep blue Pacific Ocean. Along the top of the area is a network of walking trails dotted with mysterious hidden dedications to an ancient Japanese Buddhist monk known as Kobo Daishi or Kukai. While you’re wandering, you can make stops for panoramic cliffside views at a lighthouse built in 1914 and the Tengu's Nose observation point, both offering some of the best seaside views in all of Kochi.
