About this sight

Empress Jingu was said to have passed by Cape Nagu, a geographically important location on the Oki Island passageway. The locals enjoy it as romantic lookout spot, and often bring their own snacks for picnics or just to relax. Cape Nagu has a very outdoorsy feel with the warmth of a cozy cafe. There is an observation deck that connects with a walkway that leads down to the Japan Sea, along with a lighthouse constructed in 1910. The parking lot itself is an observation deck, so for those who are not comfortable walking, you'll also be able to enjoy the spectacular view from the comfort of your car. The distant rays of sunlight shining over this cape earned the cape its name, “Stairway to Heaven”.
