Rice Terraces of Sodeshi
There are about 400 rice paddies utilizing the geological features of coastal terraces. They have been selected as one of the 100 best rice terraces in Japan by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries. In recent years, students of universities in Kyoto have cooperated in the preservation of these terraced rice paddy fields.

Inugasaki Cape
The cape is made of andesite rocks. The cape is called Inugasaki--literally "dog cape"--because its shape resembles that of a crouching dog. You can enjoy seasonal flowers on the cape. With a marine taxi, you can visit a coastal cave called "Ai-no-dokutsu" ("love cave").

Revitalization Project of Rice Terraces of Sodeshi
Rice Terraces of Sodeshi had previously been fallow for years. Now you can experience planting and harvesting rice in these rice paddies. Students of universities in the Keihanshin region and volunteers gather to hand-plant rice seedlings in spring, and harvest rice in autumn.

ガイドさんのおすすめポイント!

Looking eastward from Konoshiro, Tango Town towards Kyogamisaki, you can enjoy a wonderful view of a 120,000-year-old abrasive platform, coastal terraces formed by the elevation of the ground and the lowering of the sea surface caused by a crustal movement, and a multitude of islets. Where is the best viewpoint from which to enjoy Tango Matsushima? Immediately as you come out of the Inugasaki Tunnel on the Konoshiro side, on the left side of the road, there is an excursion path leading to the tip of Inugasaki Cape. On this excursion path, there is the best viewpoint from where you can enjoy a much wider view of Tango Matsushima than from the national road above.
