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.

  • Shirahama was cramped with no apparent to neighborhood something in itself ... If it comes to a great place to go once a long schedule. Don't go number 2. Heh

  • Due to high winds could stand so cannot go to the edge of the mat is a shame. You can enjoy the unusual scenery created by nature I think to anyone who's interested in nothing but.

  • Senjojiki is not making a flat clean overlapping the renovation, not just to the flat rocks just a little. Parking was close and we dropped in it, and was near the hotel, but boring! Child is not a place for adults to go to may be the better.
