Cape Aonae

Cape Aonae (青苗岬) is a cape in the southmost point of Okushiri Island, and is near Okushiri Airport. The root of the cape has the 2nd largest residential area in the Okushiri, and it is famous for suffering heavy damage from Tsunami. The tip of the cape is developed as Tokuyo Memorial Park (徳洋記念緑地公園) at present. Jikusho (時空翔), Okushirito Tsunamikan (奥尻島津波館), Tokuyo Monument (徳洋記念碑) and Aonaemisaki lighthouse (青苗岬灯台) are built at the cape. In addition, various playground equipments for children and a tourist facility for abalone catching experience are also built. The Self-Defense Forces camped when I visited here.

    Jikusho

For the requiem, a monument of a black granite stone and a floor like a mirror were built on a small hill. The monument of a hollow point to the southwestern direction, the epicenter.
