The site of a castle town along the old San'in Road and mountains formed of hard volcanic rock

Muraoka
(Muraoka)

Volcanic rocks and sedimentary rocks generated during the time of the formation of the Sea of Japan and after are widely distributed, covered by lava formed after the formation of the Japanese Archipelago. Valleys and waterfalls were formed by a variety of geological processes. Additionally, mudstone formed by deposition in the shallow sea at the time of formation of the Sea of Japan are spread over the area, causing landslides in old times to make gentle slopes. Such landforms are used in the people’s lives.

ガイドさんのおすすめポイント!

Saruodaki Waterfall is located 1km from the national road, and it takes 2-3 minutes from the parking lot. Figures of Buddha and bodhisattva seem to appear on the natural wall, so that people come to pray for a wish and give thanks for the achievement of the wish. Saruodaki Festal is held in July to provide Somen Nagashi (somen noodle catching).
