There are two main scenic drives in Kimotsuki Town. One is along the Pacific coast, and the other is over the Kunimi Mountains.

The coastal drive starts from Hami, at the mouth of the  Kimotsuki River, and continues through Uchinoura and Kishira, all the way to Hetsuka Beach. There are many great views of the rocky coastline as well as a few beaches.

The drive through the mountains takes you from Kawakami to Kishira. In late April through May you can see the vivid greens and in June you can see many different colors of hydrangea.

Both of these routes are never busy. If you’re coming from the States, just remember to drive on the left side.
