Wild horses are living here. Gentle hills extend, and you can observe wild horses, called Misaki-
uma, living and grazing there. It is said that the Misaki-uma are the descendants of army horses
left grazing and which became wild 300 years ago.
Beautiful and exciting Shine, located the cave of the cliff side facing the Pacific Ocean. In legend,
a goddess of sea built a hut to give birth to a great god here. Then it is said that Empress Suiko
(554-628) built the shrine there.
Japan’s own replica of Moai Statues. Enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean,
the Sun Messe Nichinan has replicas of the Moai statues from the Easter Island placed here and
there in the area.
The suggested sightseeing spot in Nichinan. The 60m altitude pass allows you to look down
at a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean. The coastline here is lined with rocks that have been
worn away by the waves splashing against them, as well as beautiful phoenix palm trees.
The moss-covered stone walls, broad stone steps in front of the Ote-mon main gate, moat ruin,
and old samurai residences all bring back the past. The Matsuo-no-Maru residence and Ote-mon
have been reconstructed using the treasured Obi cedar wood.
