Hashigui Rock, Kushimoto-cho

(200+ reviews on the web)
Geologic Formation
Observe the legendary rock formations rising like jagged, geological shark fins from the water at Hashigui Rock. 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 Rock and other attractions in Kushimoto-cho.
