The section of route 229 between Tomari Village, Iwanai Town and Cape Kamui in Shakotan Town is called the Kabuto Line. This section of the road runs along the bottom of the cliffs and steep hills facing the Sea of Japan. As such its construction was quite a feat. The Kabuto Line allows people to enjoy traveling by car through the beautiful landscapes of the coastline and the sea. Around Kabuto Rock in particular are steep cliffs. The Kabuto Line is designated as one of the top 10 scenic areas of Shiribeshi District. Visitors can assuredly admire one of the natural and unique vistas of Hokkaido.
