Soba Cafe Yuuhi

Cafe in Kunisaki Peninsula

This beach-casual shop might offer the most spectacular sunset of your trip: the sun sinks into the ocean or behind mudflats that stretch to the horizon – on clear evenings you can even see the green flash. Yuuhi sells handmade soba, smoothies (¥700) and iced coffee (¥400), and rents such gear as stand-up paddleboards (¥2000 per hour) and clamming equipment (¥500).

Go for kamo nanban (duck soup) soba or the koikana (lover's wish) set meal (¥1200), with soba, fried side dishes and heart-shaped onigiri (rice balls).

It's on a roadside turnout by the little beach Matama-kaigan (真玉海岸).
