Cape Hennazi is a 1.5 mile tendril that ends at the lighthouse. A national landmark, the Higashi Hennazaki Lighthouse keeps ships out of the shallow seas and humongous boulders surrounding the cape. The road from the highway takes you to within 1/4 mile of the...More

Though at the cape itself, there is a park that has great view of the ocean. Paying 200yen/pax to go up and have some cool wind (against the hot day) is even better. Enjoy the various blue tones of the Ocean from the top.

本当に細長い岬の突端にあるため、眺めがとても良いです。 砂洲ではなく岩なので高さも十分です。 灯台は200円で上まで上がることが出来るのですが、当日は強風と足痛の為断念しました。でも登らずとも十分360度のサンゴ礁の景色を楽しむことが出来ます。 お勧めの観光スポットだと思います。 The view is very good as it is really at the tip of a long narrow cape.

The lighthouse is pretty much just a lighthouse. There is a small plaque detailing the various boat wrecks in the 1940's which led to the construction of the lighthouse. What was amazing were the views of the waters/rocks at the end of the cape. On...More

North end of Miyako, the Lighthouse offers a great panoramic view of beautiful water and rock formations. It is about a 700m walk from the parking lot, but you Poke-goers may 'find' some interest, as well. Bathrooms and vending machines at parking lot.

It's a pretty lighthouse, easy walk to the top to take in beautiful views. The lush grounds are very well kept and it was a peaceful environment, at least when we went in the spring. It was 200 yen for adults to go into the...More
