The Pacific Ocean stretches out in a gentle arc in front of you, and you can feel that the earth is round.
The adjacent Cape Shionomisaki Kanko Tower, which is 100 meters above sea level, offers a 360-degree panoramic view of the lush green grass and azure sea in front of you, and on a clear day, you can even see as far as Mount Nachi in the distance.

3Peony Rock "Botan Iwa"
Located in the Tsukinose area of Kozagawa Town, it is a strange rock surface with numerous holes of various sizes in the shape of a beehive.
It is named "Peony Rock" because the pattern of holes resembles a peony flower.
Located in the Aise district of Kozagawa Town, it is a national natural treasure, a huge rock 100 meters high and 500 meters wide. It is a stately figure that rises from the river's edge, overpowering the surrounding landscape.
Today is always the most enjoyable day.
