Makizaki Wind Park

Basalt coastline and grassy, flowery trails

This island cape extending into the Sea of Japan is a small, rare, and curious ecosystem you can readily enjoy. From the free parking lot at the end of the road, stroll straight up the path through what was once ancient pasture. Here, the landscape becomes mostly green, with the grasses growing shorter and shorter toward the shore. The area is windswept and lined with hard igneous rock at the water’s edge. There are no trees here, just small, scrubby bushes and hearty flowers in this harsh environment. The breeze also brings beauty in from the deep to Tsunoshima in the form of nami-no-hana, or “flowering” wave crests, especially during the winter.
