Kakaji town is a collection of fishing villages on the north coast of the Kunisaki Peninsular in northern Kyushu.
We stayed in one of the villages, Otakajima, when we visited Kunisaki last year.
The ryokan was excellent quality, but cheap, probably because it is off the main road. Actually the village was in a hidden cove that could only be reached by a narrow mountain road.
The little island, Horseback Island, had a small shrine that could be reached at low tide.
The village ( actually small hamlet would be more accurate) was of course well protected by concrete.
