Soba Cafe Yuuhi

Top choice cafe in Kunisaki Peninsula

Timed right, this might be the most spectacular view you see your entire trip: the glowing setting sun sinking into the ocean or behind mud flats that seem to go right out to the horizon. On Kunisaki's northwest coast, this humble soba shop in a roadside turnout sells handmade soba and rents stand-up paddle boards (SUP; ¥2000 per hour) for use at high tide.

In addition to paddle boarding there's clamming equipment you can rent (¥500 per set), a smoothie bar (¥400), and iced coffee (¥400). On clear evenings you can even see the green flash.
