The site of a marvelous rock seashore where the historical villages of Mio and Misaki are located

Tajima Miihonoura
(Tajima Miihonoura)

The Tajima Mihonoura, designated as national scenic beauty and natural monument, is a valuable site where many strata and rocks recording the formation of Sea of Japan are observed. They are producing beautiful landscape such as strange-shaped rocks and rock tunnels of Shishinokuchi. Though you can enjoy these landscapes from the seashore roads, we truly recommend you to take excursion boats or water taxis to enjoy the scenery from the sea.

Shishi-no-kuchi Rock

The intermediate part between multiple layers of lava (clinker, etc.) is oxidized into red, and eroded to make a void, like a lion’s mouth.
