Very beautiful, nice walking track to the top of the cliff. There were cows and horses, but you don't have to be afraid of them. Wear long pants and be careful, there is cow's droppings everywhere!

This beautiful walk can be combined with Matengai cliffs for a lovely loop on foot from Urago. Well marked, clean toilets, picnic spots. Amazing views of the coastline with peaceful cows and horses grazing. Few tourists. What more could you want?

We took a boat tour to look at the views and check out the sea caves. The weather was really overcast so it was hard to get good photos, but the views were still breathtaking and dramatic. The tour is all in Japanese, but it's...More

Besides the amazing views, the wild horses and cows make it even more exciting (just make sure to watch your step). I did this as a solo hike and I'm glad I took my time with it, since there were a lot of different angles...More
