Located at 40゜ north latitude, Cape Nyudozaki at the northernmost point of Oga Peninsula offers a stunning view of the Sea of Japan. The Lat. 40゜Monument, commemorating Cape Nyudozaki’s location, was built in 1990 using andesite rock from Mt. Kanpuzan. In the center of the round sun platform are the Sundial Stone and Map Stone, and pointing the way due north is the Northern Stone. Beijing and New York are among the other cities located at the same latitude.
