One of the most beautiful and spectacular coastlines in the world, the Rikuchu Coast is located in northeastern Honshu's Miyagi prefecture on the Pacific side of Japan. Much of it is a National Park. The awe-inspiring cliffs of Cape Kitamisaki are a major highlight but the entire coastline is well worth seeing.

Wow, very nice pics. World’s most beautiful coastlines is the Rikuchu coast. You can see great scenery in the form of cavities and rock formations at Tanohata cliffs. You can see Kitayamazaki Point, the Jodogahama Beach, Goishi-kaigan Beach, Old temples, Iwate Park and Nakatsugawa River Banks. Ryusendo Cave is also very nice - in this major attraction is small lake at the bottom, which is about 120 meters deep.
