Genbudo Park, Toyooka

4.0
#2 of 13 in Parks in Toyooka
Observe the bizarre polygonal geological formations at Genbudo Park. Dating back about 1.6 million years, the configuration is the result of a volcanic process known as columnar jointing, in which cooling molten rock forms prismatic columns, sometimes 30 m (98 ft) long. Be sure to bring along your camera and capture this rare and mysterious occurrence. Use our Toyooka vacation builder to arrange your visit to Genbudo Park and other attractions in Toyooka.

    I stopped by on the way to kinosaki Onsen. Genbudo and-Dong is just 90 metres away. Near the parking lot. I felt the force of nature.

    Big Rock, especially without expecting visited but have powerful felt makes a natural beauty. Surrounded by forest, is a very mysterious atmosphere. Cute local character.
