Kitayamazaki Cliffs

Kitayamazaki Cliffs are magnificent!  Raising 200 meters above sea level, Kitayamazaki Cliffs create a splendid scenery as they decorate Tohuku’s coastline for a length of 8km. The view of the wind- and water- sculpted rocks is fantastic from the observation decks which can be reached by walking on the various esplanades.

Starting your way from the top of the cliff you can walk down to sea level by taking the trail that is stretched from the Kitayamazaki observation deck. If you go to the visitors center, next to the observation deck, make sure you watch the informative video about the cliffs, displayed on a high definition wide screen. The visitors center is free and open continuously.

Another way to enjoy the majesty and grandeur of the cliffs is by the sea. Take the boat from the Port of Shimanokoshi. The tour lasts for 50 min. You will also get to enjoy feeding the sea gulls that follow the boat!
