Certainly it is the place that you cannot miss it if you drive a long way from Sapporo. The scenic is breath taking.

So Glad we did the drive out to Cape Kamui from Otaru; this was a much more interesting spot. The hike is not too difficult, and takes about 25 min each way. Along the path we were treated to lovely scenery and were lucky we...More

Very scenic and nice trail! It is not a difficult trail, less than 30 min each way, walking slowly. It is narrow and has steps, up and down but it is mostly paved, and has good railings. So you feel very safe. There are some...More

Breathtaking and very beautiful! Definitely worth the 2 hours trip from Otaru. You can have the shakotan peninsula view as well as snow capped mountain from here. Free parking and clean toilet available.

Cape Kamui is breathtaking - literally and figuratively! The walk can be steep in parts and leave you gasping for breath, but the views make it worthwhile. I'd suggest skipping the highest and first viewing point (closest to the parking) as the view isn't the...More

The guide says 40m one way to the edge of the cape. Along the way there are some narrow bridge/pathways that will be quite scary for someone with acrophobia (fear of heights). Awesome views throughout, but at the end you will be rewarded with the...More

I'm so glad we decided to drive the extra 1.5 hours from Otaru to see Cape Kamui and other parts of Shakotan Town. The coastal views are amazing from the car and even more stunning from Cape Kamui. The walk to the tip is an...More

Our favourite Cape visit. We loved the windy condition. Unfortunately, The 800m trail (which looks super exciting to walk across) to the lighthouse located at the tip of the cape was closed because of the strong wind! It was fun as we could feel ourselves...More

I only see public buses at the location. I think it's quite a hassle to get there using public buses. You can google it.
