A rocky cliff face braving the waves, the sea crashing against the reefs and the steep coast, a lighthouse watching over the ships... the site has all the traits of a cape, creating the sensation of being at the edge of the world, face to face with the almighty elements. Ashizuri-misaki lies at the southern tip of the island of Shikoku and affords boundless views out over the Pacific. Note Kongofuku-ji Temple (17C) near the lighthouse.
