Senjojiki, Shirahama-cho

3.7
#3 of 8 in Sightseeing in Shirahama-cho
Geologic Formation Lookout
Witness the power of the natural world at Senjojiki, a stretch of coastline made up of particularly impressive geological formations. The tiered rock formations display the work of the Pacific Ocean over the years, with the strong waves eroding the rocks into their current shape, said to look like a thousand tatami mats, an image after which the site has been named. Walk out onto the plateau to gain a closer look at the waves and the strikingly formed rocks, but take care as the wind can pick up throughout the day. Put Senjojiki at the forefront of your travel plans using our Shirahama-cho trip itinerary maker.

  • Nice and spacious. Parking is also free at the nearby restaurant. Rock graffiti everywhere, however, is disappointing.

  • Here is very broad, so long-lived is not rugged and tired quickly. However, it is recommended because of the volcanic flows and sea close to going to the edge of the rocks. I will take your child (because here there is no limits to where staff really), watch out. Also, this spot is famous in Shirahama, watch the sunset time reduces people (engetsu island and Shirahama Beach Sunset point, so go where people would). So spectacular sunsets from here (no car problems so wide and close parking) to try the array!
