Onigajo 鬼ヶ城

The cliffs that look like demons are most certainly a unique view!

Onigajo, a work of art created by nature through geological protrusion, erosion and weathering, is a cliff that continues for 1 km along the Kumanonada Sea.
It is designated as Japan's Scenic Spot and also Natural Monument.
On top of the cliffs, there is a castle ruin dating back to the Age of Civil Wars, and a hiking path is made to connect Kumanokodo and Matsumoto-toge.
From the observation deck called the ""Demon's Lookout Point"", you could get the view of the entire Kumanonada Sea.

There are cherry trees planted along the hiking path leading to the top of the cliff, and in spring, 4 types of cherry blossoms will bloom one after the other and please the tourists for a long period of time.
