Kabushima Shrine

蕪島神社

Kabushima, located at the northernmost tip of the Tanesashi Coast, is a breeding ground for the petrel and is designated as a national natural monument. It is also a popular spot that has been certified for excellence by TripAdvisor. Originally a completely isolated island, it was reclaimed by the former Japanese army in 1942, and became the landlocked island we see today.


This is the only place in Japan where you can observe the breeding of the petrel up close. They start laying eggs around April, and the chicks come home around June. There are 30,000 to 40,000 of them, and the island is covered with them. The Kabura-jima Shrine at the top of the island is said to have the power to increase stock prices and popularity, as the word "turnip" and "stock" are read the same way.


In mid-May, the island is filled with rape blossoms. The contrast between the yellow of the rape blossoms, the red of the Kabura-jima Shrine's torii gate, the white plumage and the blue sky makes for a beautiful sight.


The Hachinohe City Kabura-jima Rest Area, where you can observe Kabura-jima and the petrel through a large window, the Kabura-jima Promenade Park, where you can have a barbecue, and the Mariento Fisheries Science Museum, where you can learn about the charms of the sea, are all within walking distance. Please come and visit.
