Kakaji Town


Kakaji town is a collection of fishing villages on the north coast of the Kunisaki Peninsular in northern Kyushu.


We stayed in one of the villages, Otakajima, when we visited Kunisaki last year.


The ryokan was excellent quality, but cheap, probably because it is off the main road. Actually the village was in a hidden cove that could only be reached by a narrow mountain road.


The little island, Horseback Island, had a small shrine that could be reached at low tide.


The village ( actually small hamlet would be more accurate) was of course well protected by concrete.


This is not the ryokan!

  1. Wow, I have just stumbled upon your blog now and the post is about Kakaji! I live in Kunimi, the next town over. Your pictures make everything like so beautiful - which it is but it loses it's beautifulness after living here for 12 years :)
