- Cape Taichi Kira-Kira Observation Deck - Shinojima Island (Taichi Misaki Kira-Kira Tenbodai - Shinojima)
Minamichita-Town Cape Taichi Kira-Kira Observation Deck - Shinojima Island (Taichi Misaki Kira-Kira Tenbodai - Shinojima)
A "power spot" beloved by the islanders, who worship Ise Jingu Shrine from afar from this very location!
Atop the coastal cliffs of Cape Taichi (Taichi Misaki), in the southernmost extremity of Shinojima Island, there's a sacred Tori gate and, right behind it, an observation deck. From here an observer can see the whole coast of Mie Prefecture facing Ise Bay, including the mountains of Ise-City, the islands off the coast of Toba-City to the southwest, and Irago in Atsumi Peninsula, straight to the south.
This place is especially popular for the amazing sights of sunrise and sunset, being included in the ranking of Best 100 Sunset Spots in Japan, and the only entry of Aichi Prefecture.
