Nagasaki-bana Cape


Nagasaki-bana Cape is the southernmost point of the Satsuma Peninsula.

A walking path leads from a small cluster of souvenir shops to the tip of the cape where

there stands a white lighthouse.

A highlight of a visit to the cape are the views of nearby Mount Kaimondake, which stands

924 meters above sea level. Because of its conical shape, it bears a striking resemblance to

Mount Fuji and is often referred to as “Satsuma Fuji”.

it took him to Ryugu-jo (the Palace of the Dragon as a token of it’s gratitude).
