ガイドさんのおすすめポイント!

At the mouth of the Takeno River, which runs through the Tango Peninsula from south to north, stands Tateiwa. The water of the Takeno River pushing against Tateiwa changes its course to the east, west, or both sides, and even makes the river flow backwards depending on the season. Natural factors such as the sea current and seasonal wind carry the sea sand in different directions depending on season, and so the river water can also change its course accordingly. The water runs toward the east from autumn to winter, and toward the west from spring to summer. Which direction will the river run when you visit?
