The black and white Oma Cape Lighthouse stands on Benteto Island of Oma Cape, which is designated as part of Shimokita Hanto Quasi-National Park. The Oma Cape Lighthouse has been chosen as one of the top 50 lighthouses of Japan. During the tuna fishing season (July-January), pole-and-line fishing boats can be seen from the cape.
Cape Oma is located on the northern most part of Honshu. On clear days, the city of Hakodate in Hokkaido can be seen across the ocean. Oma’s city symbol is a tuna pole-and-line fishing statue and a stone monument marking the northern most point of Japan’s main island, Honshu.. A common kitchen, free rest place (April-October), tent sites (free) are available nearby.
