Cape Ogon as seen from Ogonmisaki Seaside Park

The word ogon means "golden" in Japanese. According to some locals, Cape Ogon got its name because back in the day, herrings used to gather by the thousands near the cape to spawn. The light of the setting sun would reflect on their scales creating a magical golden hue.

Today, despite the dwindling population of herrings in the area, the sunsets seen in Ogonmisaki Seaside Park remain to be one of the most beautiful in Japan. Speaking about the park, it's good to note that some of the pebble tiles have images of marine life commonly seen in Cape Ogon.
