Cape Shiriya is at the most northeasterly point in Honshu, the main island of Japan. The "Kandachime" horses, which originated in Aomori Prefecture, graze here. The horse's name comes from the fact that they stand straight and still throughout the frigid winters of northern Japan, which at times can reach record low temperature of around minus 30 degrees Celsius. These are strong stout horses that become aggressive when they see stranger people walking around. I was chased away trying to get up close to these gorgeous creatures. The sight of the grazing horses set against the lighthouse in the cliffs is a particularly impressive scene, especially during winter.
