At the southern end of Nichinan Coast juts out a 4km-long promontory inhabited by wild horses. Around 100 horses living here are a type of pony and descendents of a few military horses released some three hundred years ago. This species is proper to Japan and was designated a national natural monument in 1953. The visitor center has a museum in its building, that explains in details about the horses and the nature of this cape.

The very end of the cape has a lighthouse standing on the cliff, commanding a good view of the area. The island you can see from the lighthouse is famous for monkeys which wash potatoes at beach. The cape area celebrates a fire festival in late August, based on a legend of a monster serpent.
