Genbudo Park, Toyooka

(4/5 based on 180 reviews on the web)
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.
