Along the Chirihama Nagisa Driveway want to stretch your legs at this place. Sea wind blows through your hair, and the view is limited, but nice, even in autumn. The kiosk of course is clean, just as the restrooms are. I wonder what the mountainous...More

Semmaida - meaning 1000 pieces of rice field, actually has 1004, is located right beside the seashore, giving a spectacular view and tranquil environment. As its beside the seashore, can get very windy.
