Superb Coast Chosen as 100 Best Beaches in Japan and Blue Sea -Shimamui Coast in Shakotan-

April 4th, 2016

Shimamui Coast (島武意海岸) is a superb coast chosen as "100 Best Beaches in Japan (日本の渚・百選)" in Cape Shakotan (積丹岬). Tourists can look over the Shimamui Coast from cliffs at about 100 m above sea level, and it is splendid. The tourists will take their breath away toward a scenery under their eyes after passing through a tunnel and approaching to an exit. There are 2 observatory places in a neighborhood of exit and the tourists can look over. Furthermore, it takes about 10 minutes from an observatory deck to the shore on foot. It is hard to go down stairways because the stairways are rough, but visitors can see the beautiful sea up close. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge.
