The distance between Cape Oma and Cape Shiokubi in Hakodate City is only 17.5 kilometers over the Tsugaru Strait. On a clear day, you can see Hakodate’s famous Goryokaku Tower from Cape Oma with the naked eye. You can also take a commemorative photo at our tuna monument. The monument is modeled after a 440 kilogram tuna that was caught by pole fishing here in Oma.
The entire Shimokita Peninsula has been recognized as a national geopark (Shimokita Geopark). In November 2017, Shimokita Geopark entered into a cooperation agreement with Yehliu Geopark in Taiwan. Omazaki is one of the 16 geoheritage sites of Shimokita Geopark.
