Cape Nyudo is the cape at the northwestern tip of Oga peninsula.
It is located about 5 km northwest of Oga hot spring resort.
In Japanese, it is "Nyudozaki", but both vowels are pronounced long, so it is read as Nyûdôzaki.

It is known for one of the spots of beautiful sunset viewing.

The coastline has steep cliffs about 30 meters high, but head of the cliffs is flat and a field of grass spreads out.

A lighthouse built in 1898 stands by it.
The height is about 28 meters.
You can enter inside of the lighthouse for a fee between April and mid-November.

It is a trip for about 30 minutes, and is operated from the end of April to October.
