 Shionomisaki
Shionomisaki cape is the southern most point of the Main Island in Japan. The cape is broadcast on TV frequently when a typhoon is coming to Kii peninsula. We call this area "Taifu Ginza", because typhoons often come to this area. But, spring is the best season for the fishing of bonito and we can eat fresh bonito-dishes; there are a lot of fishing grounds off the cape.
