[Hazu Cape]

The cape on the tip of the Chita Peninsula, sprawling with ubame oak trees

Hazu Cape-the southernmost point of the Chita Peninsula. The ubame oak trees here are a designated natural monument. The gentle hills of the cape are covered in coastal vegetation and warm-climate evergreens, mainly comprised of the famed ubame oaks-very different from the flora in the nearby mountains. On an 800-meter path lined with ubame oaks, Hazu-jinja Shrine and an observation platform stand at a good vantage point. From there, you can see the nearby islands of Himaka and Shinojima, and out across Mikawa Bay and Ise Bay. Also on Hazu Cape is a stone inscribed with the lyrics to "Hazumisaki", a song by popular girl group SKE48 about the cape. The monument was erected in 2013, and Hazu Cape has since become something of a mecca for the group's fans, catapulting the cape to fame. If you read the lyrics carefully while actually standing on the cape, you can truly understand what they mean.
