Observe the earth from a spot where it actually looks round at Cape Chikyu and ring a bell for happiness. Voted the most beautiful scene in Japan, this favorite tourist spot attracts both locals and foreigners year-round, displaying nature at its best. A white octagonal-shape lighthouse and an observatory built at 147 m (482 ft) above the sea level gives the opportunity to take photos overlooking the bay. Listen to sheer force of waves endlessly smashing against rocks and watch the panorama overlooking the bay. You can also watch for dolphins and whales across the Uchiura Bay.

  • Beautifull nature !! 😍 But you must prepare more jacket if you want comfortable 😁 This place will show you, how beautifull mountain and sea best ever 😉
  • Only when the weather is clear... Don’t go there in a foggy day for you’ll see below nothing but fog/clouds. But please go there in bright weather, and you’ll be amazed by the huge dimensions, great panorama. Up there are a few small businesses, like quick bite restaurants, shops.
  • It was foggy when we went up and couldn't see anything but nice experience. The roads are quite narrow on the way up and down, drive slow and carefully...
  • Very strong wind and a nice stop by for the beautiful scenery.
  • In a city with not much to do this is a beautiful highlight and photo spot! Near it at the mountain there are also several small mom and pop food shops that serve amazing streetfood and noodles including the specialty Curry Ramen.
