Cape Ashizuri

足摺岬(Ashizuri Misaki)
Views of the dynamic landscape of Shikoku's most southern cape.
“Cape Ashizuri” is at the southernmost tip of Shikoku. From the observatory, 270 degree views allow you to clearly perceive just how round the earth is. Standing on the edge of the cliffs is Cape Ashizuri Lighthouse, one of the largest lighthouses in Japan and the symbol of the cape. Along with an abundance of subtropical plants, there are many variants of camellia growing here, giving rise to the nickname "Cape Camellia."
At nearby Tatsukushi and Minokoshi Coasts, exciting views of coral reefs and tropical fish await you on glass-bottom boat tours.
