Cape Toi projecting into the Pacific Ocean is at the southernmost part of the Nichinan-kaigan Coast. Its natural environment has been well preserved. The white lighthouse standing on the cliff 255 meters above sea level has been watching out for the safety of marine traffic since 1929 when it was first lighted. Cape Toi Visiter Center is situated in this rich natural environment.

 

The main feature of the place is wild horses called Misaki-uma. It is said that the Misaki-uma are the descendants of army horses left grazing by Manabe Clan that governed the district from the last half of the 16th century during the Edo Period. They then became wild and are now designated as a Natural Monument in 1958 as pure horses indigenous to Japan. Misaki-uma is as small as 130cm both in height and length and famous for their loveliness.
