The view was beautiful. The walk up the cape was easy. It was mostly visited by locals. If you love nature, Cape Kamui is definitely worth visiting.

We went with a tour group. The hike included a lot more climbing than we expected, but the views were spectacular. Be on the look out for foxes!

It is only about an hour drive from Otaru. It worths to go. It is not just because of the rugged rocks in the ocean but also scenic drive on the way. The walkway from car park took about 15-20 mins only, easy no difficulties....More
