Cape Nagasakibana

The southernmost point of the Satsuma Peninsula

By Mandy Bartok   - 1 min read

Cape Nagasakibana isn't the southernmost point in all of Kyushu but it is at the tip of the Satsuma Peninsula. Offering views of the rocky coast and clear sightings (on most days) of Kagoshima's iconic Mt Kaimon, it's a contemplative location. The brightly-colored Ryugu Shrine, which recounts the tale of a man taken under the sea by a turtle and returned 300 years later, stands a few meters from the water's edge.
