Miyagawa Park at the tip of the Miura Peninsula is the largest wind farm in the Kanto area south of Tokyo. The wind turbines produce 800 Kilowats of power per hour each, enough to supply the local villages in this part of Japan. The towers stand at 35 metres, and each blade measures more than 15 metres in length, creating a whooshing sound with each pass. Unlike other wind farms in many parts of the world, the locals are happy with it, as it has also become a tourist attraction in the area.
