Cape Ashizuri

Cape Ashizuri, located at the tip of the Ashizuri Peninsula jutting out into the azure Pacific Ocean, is the southernmost cape in Shikoku. An observatory on the cape commands a view of more than 180 degrees, allowing you to truly feel that the earth is round. You can see spectacular landscapes created by nature, and certainly feel the grandeur of the earth. Along trails in this area there are many mysterious places associated with Kobo Daishi, an ancient Japanese Buddhist monk also known as Kukai, and tours aimed at making you feel the so-called “seven wonders” in these locations are organized. You can also ride a glass-bottomed boat to view underwater scenes, such as coral and tropical fish, off the Tatsukushi and Minokoshi beaches near Cape Ashizuri.
