Cape Hazu is located at Morozaki on the very south of the Chita Peninsula. Southwest of this sightseeing ship port, there is a primeval forest, chiefly consisting of ubame oak amongst warm-climate-loving evergreens, which is specified as a natural monument and provides scenery quite different from the nearby mountains with their other plants.
From a good vantage point you can see the whole 800 meter promenade of ubame oaks, and nestled within, Hazu Shrine and an observation platform. The views also take in Himakajima Island, Shinojima Island, Mikawa Bay and Ise Bay.
There is a legend that a Hazusaki Castle was built at this cape, by the Atsuta Shrine high priest, Senshu Masayoshi, in the early 14th century during the period of the Northern and Southern Dynasties.
