Kakuda Cliffs

Black volcanic cliffs rising out of the Sea of Japan

By Bryan Baier    - 1 min read

A volcanic event of millennia past gave rise to Mt. Kakuda and the constant erosion by waves of its seaward flank has left behind the stunning black lava Kakuda Cliffs. A cave/tunnel under the cape that supports a lighthouse leads to a ~400m long trail that traverses the length of the cliffs. The cliffs are an awesome landscape to behold, a favorite local fishing hole, and a fabulous place to see the sunset.
