Shikoku: Cape Ashizuri Area
Kochi Prefecture’s Cape Ashizrui is the southern-most point on the island of Shikoku and as such, can be considered the end point of the Kochi surf coast. Protruding into the Pacific Ocean, the cape affords fantastic views with walking trails leading to the Cape Ashizuri Lighthouse and along the coast or up the hill to Kongofuku-ji Temple – the 38th of 88 temples making-up the Shikoku Henro. With the coral reefs of the Tatsukushi Marie Park in close proximity there’s plenty to explore around the cape and with that, also a good range of accommodation.
The Mana Village overlooking the ocean and offering both Japanese, Western and mixed-style rooms along with a hot spring is the best in the area while another seaside option, Dot Glamping, also offers a comfortable stay with views of the ocean.
