Hashigui-iwa, Kushimoto-cho

(4.2/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Observe the legendary rock formations rising like jagged, geological shark fins from the water at Hashigui-iwa. This odd composition extends in a straight line for a distance of 850 m (2,788 ft) towards the neighboring island. Low tide exposes the rocky seabed, allowing for up-close inspection of these monoliths--apparently caused by weathering over the ages. Folklore suggests a different tale, however, telling how the strange forms are the foundations of an ancient bridge, sabotaged by a fearsome monster named Amanojaku. By using our Kushimoto-cho trip itinerary builder, you can arrange your visit to Hashigui-iwa and other attractions in Kushimoto-cho.

  • 車開到ㄧ半,路邊出現了吸引人的奇景。好多顆的岩石就矗立在海邊,真的好奇特喔。 還可以散步到岩石中拍照,更會覺得大自然的驚奇。  more »
  • Scenic spots located on the way from kushimoto in the direction of Shingu. You will see high waves in the rain on this day, among the rocks and waves are high, powerful waves. Also here were selling at station road, Katsu sandwich fried tuna and tuna. Tuna cutlet is recommended. We ordered fried me, so had to wait, but piping hot and delicious. Cutlet is 500 yen with six. I could taste and would remain one. I recommend to eat the.

  • I went to mid-February. You can see Sunrise Sunrise is slow this time of year, so something a little earlier. Powerful drive is from the car park 5 minutes hashikui-IWA rock appears from the hotel room. We can see very nice Sunrise and clear air in the winter.
