Sai village (Sai-mura) in Shimokita Peninsula adjacent to Mutsu City

Hotokegaura coast

Sai occupies the western coastline of Shimokita Peninsula, facing the inlet to Mutsu Bay from the Tsugaru Strait. The village has a cold maritime climate characterized by cool short summers and long cold winters with heavy snowfall.

The 2 kilometer long Hotokegaura Coastline, near the village of Sai, along with Mt.Osore, is Shimokita's most famous tourist attraction. The towering cliffs, which appear like Buddhas soaring up toward the heavens, are a stunning and unusual natural formation that graces the western coast of the peninsula. Many are as tall as 100 meters and have been shaped by rain, wind, and surf errosion. "Hotokegaura" can be taken to mean "the beach where the Budhas reside."

Close to the magnificent coastline of Hotokegaura, Gankake Park has a view of both Aomori's Tsugaru Peninsula and Hokkaido's Oshima Peninsula. Evening brings a fabulous sunset, which is followed at night by the twinkling lights of fishing boats on the surrounding salty waters. On the coast of Sai, also there are many places of osprey nesting.
