Senjojiki, Shirahama-cho

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.

    It is a few minutes walk to the grass area leading from the parking lot. Wondering why only white rocks out. Really liked the contrast of the white of the blue of the sea and the rocks. It was a prominent graffiti rock was.

    It is personally, than the sea mountain is like, so like come along this coast. Here at rock 迫ri出shita to the sea is actually 1,000 tatami mats, let alone 10,000 tatami mats is the size of Western light. It is to say the art works of nature, created to help uplift with strong winds and heavy seas. Explore on the rock really had tended to be seen from a distance, but this time, I realized its breadth.
