Matengai Cliff

    • Nature & Scenery
    • Nishinoshima Town
The sky-scraping cliff of Kuniga Coast.
Matengai Cliff is one of the highest sea cliffs in Japan. Standing atop the 257 m high cliff, you can get a good view of Nishinoshima Island, and the neighbouring Chiburijima Island. Sometimes you can find horses and cows grazing here and in the surrounding areas. Endemic plants, such as Oki dandelion, can be found here too! The Kuniga Coast Hiking Trail starts here and will bring you down to Tsūtenkyō Arch, and you can get a better view of Matengai Cliff near the halfway point of the trail.
