Awesome place! Amazing views to the ocean, nice short easy hike up the hill from the parking spots. Must visit on a sunny day when in Hyuga. Felt like being on top of the world.

The narrow V-shaped gorge was formed by sea wave erosion over centuries. There were 2 spots on the walking trail to view the scenery. I chose the lower one with shorter walking distance which proved to be good enough already

This was along the way when we search for sea cruss. However, we miss this scenery as we did not walk all the way down the trail. We only went upwards and saw the small light tower but the view was already great.
