Located in the northeastern area of Kasari, Amami City, this cape protrudes into the Pacific Ocean. It is said that the cape is named after its woven-patterned cotton ball, or an aya mari in Japanese. The visitors can enjoy a great panoramic view of the coral reefs around the cape with a jungle of Sotetsu trees (cycadophyte) spreading along under the observatory. In addition, Kikaijima Island appears on the east horizon on a fine day.
