Senjojiki, Shirahama-cho

(3.7/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 不經意的發現,原來酒店後面有這個美麗的景點。 清晨無人的海邊,加上鬼斧神工的岩盤海岸,處處都是驚奇。唯一可惜的是有人居然直接在岩石上刻字,可惜了!  more »
