Tahara-City Cape Irago (Iragomisaki)
At the tip of the 50km long, average 6km-wide Atsumi Peninsula is Cape Irago. The northern side of the peninsula faces the calmer, sheltered waters of Mikawa Bay, offering clean waters and good swimming conditions. The southern side faces the Pacific Ocean, meaning bigger sandy beaches with rolling dunes, and the stronger waves preferred by surfers. A certified "Lover's Sanctuary", this amazing place is pinpointed by several sightseeing attractions, offering plenty to do and see. Very popular with couples and nature lovers.
Besides the conventional land routes by train and bus, access to Cape Irago may be achieved by fast boat departing from Kowa Port in the Chita Peninsula, from Himakajima and Shinojima islands, and even ferry from Toba-City in Mie Prefecture, which adds to the value of the sightseeing experience in visiting it!
