Observe nature’s sculptures at their best from Cape Kamui a 100-200 m (328-656 ft) high coastal terrace spearheading into the ocean on Hokkaido’s Shakotan Peninsula. Strange vertical limestone formations springing from the azure sea reward hikers, after a 25-minute scenic walk on planks to reach the cape. The short, hilly trek through a maze of well-maintained trails, with many wooden observation decks, provides gorgeous scenery and excellent photo opportunities. You can also see the remnants of a World War II communication bunker tower en route. When you arrive, try dried scallops and other shellfish in the shop on the cape, which sits a 90-minute drive from Sapporo.

Cape Kamui Reviews

16時ごろ到着。下のゲートでは係りの人が退出時間を伝えてました。17時までだったかな。公園内は15分もあれば丘まで登れ、カムイ岩まで見られます。岬なので風は強いです。強すぎてこの日は岬の先端には行けませんでしたが、綺麗な夕日を見ることができてよかったです。売店ありますが、15時ごろで閉まっちゃうようです。 more »Arrived around 16:00. At the gate below, the person in charge told me the time to leave. I wonder if it was until 17:00. The park can be seen in 15 minutes to climb the hill and even Kamui Rocks. Because it is a cape, the wind is strong. It was too strong to go to the tip of the cape on this day, but it was good to see a beautiful sunset. There is a shop, but it seems to close around 15 o'clock.
We went there during winter but it was closed due to strong wind. However, we got to visit around the beach which was also nice. Wind was so strong that we had to lean ourself against the wall while taking photos. Worth visiting.
A place worth visiting. Extremely strong wind so becareful of your belonging. Not recommended for really small dog.
