Cape Iwaisaki



ContentsJapan Heritage

One of the capes located along the Sanriku ria coastline, Cape Iwaisaki is also part of the Sanriku Geopark. In addition to the the scenic beauty of seawater shot high into the air when waves strike cracks in the eroded rock, it also features exposed Paleozoic geology, rare in the Japanese archipelago. This is a precious location where you can find geological “borders” that indicate the presence of gold veins.
