Cape Nyudo-zaki

Travel Guide - Cape Nyudo-zaki


Oga-hanto Peninsula juts out for about 20 kilometers and is worth visiting to see the contrasts between its rugged coastline and grassy slopes. At the northern tip of the peninsula, Cape Nyudo-zaki features wide cliff-top lawns with fine sea views. The cape is one of the best spots for watching a sunset in Akita. The scenery of a sunset over the Sea of Japan is breathtaking.
The cape has a monument which marks northern latitude of 40 degrees and a 27.95 meters tall, striped lighthouse built in 1898. There are also some souvenir shops and restaurants lined up nearby.
