Sunset View at Cape Sata

At twilight, a majestic sight unfolds to impress the greatness of nature upon observers. The island of Kyushu's southernmost tip stirs a variety of thoughts in visitors. Relish the moment as you're caught in the embrace of mountains and sea.

Pedestrian Trail

The 800 m long path provides phenomenal views of the specific flora encompassing Sata, such as bougainvilleas, sotetsu (Cycas revoluta), and gajumaru banyan (Ficus microcarpa).
