A Geosite of waterfalls that erode a plateau of lava, and a town of paper production using effluent water

Kachibe & Hioki
(Kachibe & Hioki)

A gently sloping plateau was formed from andesite lava ejected from a point near Mt. Hachibuse after Sea of Japan was formed (in the Pliocene Epoch). This is a Geosite with effluent water. Many waterfalls were formed on the steep cliffs, where the valley bottom plains, formed by the erosion of the plateau by rivers, and the plateau meet. In this Geosite there is Mt. Otakisan, which is known as a “Sacred Place in the San’in region.”

The stone caves of Komori Shrine
These caves were formed by the erosion of the foundation part of the andesite lava ejected from the point near Mt. Hachibuse after the Sea of Japan was formed (in the Pliocene Epoch). A shrine is built as if it were embedded in the cave. The largest cave is the north cave, 20 meters in width, 4 meters in height, and 7 meters in depth at the deepest point.
