Cape Shionomisaki

What is happening at Honshu’s most southern tip?
Steep cliffs rise up from the sea where waves are wildly clashing against the rocks. Some local fishermen take hobby anglers out to these rocks. They enjoy standing there for hours casting their fishing rods. There is plenty of fish here in the sea as the Kuroshio Current is streaming by.
The Kuroshio Current (“black tide”) is a warm ocean current said to be 100 km wide that begins off the coast of Taiwan and flows northeast passing by Japan.
Did you know that this ocean current sustains Japan’s coral reefs, the most northern coral reefs in the world?
