Cape Ayamaru

Cape Ayamaru

Located in the northeastern area of Kasari, Amami City, this cape protrudes out into the Pacific Ocean. Visitors can enjoy a great panoramic view of the coral reefs around the cape with a jungle of Sotetsu trees (cycadophyte) spreading along under the observatory. The neighboring island Kikaijima appears on the eastern horizon on clear days. It is said that the name 'Cape Ayamaru' is derived from the location's resemblance to a "mari," or a woven "aya"(diagonal striped) patterned ball, hence the name "aya-maru" in Japanese.
