The wind at the car park was especially strong because there was nothing to block it. We could feel the car rocking and it was very difficult to open/close the car door. Once outside, the 3 of us had to lock our arms together and bend down to avoid being blown off our feet. My spectacles were blown off and it was a stroke of good luck that we were able to find it in the car park, scratched but we were thankful otherwise I dread to think how I could drive for the rest of our Hokkaido trip.
Walk up to the top for a stunning panoramic view of the bay with the sun shining, the strong waves and powerful wind howling away! Unfortunately the gate to the “dragon head” of the cape was closed because of the strong wind.
All-in-all truly a memorable visit.
