Cape-Oganzaki

 


Cape Oganzaki lies at the tip of the Yarabu Peninsula on the western side of Ishigaki Island in Okinawa.


When we visited in April the Easter Lillies were blooming, according to the locals this is a sign the coming summer will be hot.


A local song says this is one of the places where the gods arrived.


It is a popular spot for watching the sunset, though it is nowhere near any settlements or bus routes so you need a car to visit.


It is said on a clear day you can see Iriomote Island 20 kilometers away.


Like much of the Okinawan islands, when the sun is shining the sea is turquoise and glorious, but on cloudy overcast days.......
