Stretching out into the Pacific Ocean, this soft, sandy rock dates from the Tertiary period and was formed by centuries of erosion. This enormous protrusion looks like a huge tatami mat. A beautiful sight to see.

千畳敷

SANDANBEKI 三段壁



50 meters in height, these breath-taking cliffs can be found on the south shore of Senjojiki. Long, long ago, these cliffs were used as a look-out point from which swarms of fish and passing ships were easily spotted. The face of the cliffs extends 2㎞ from south to north. Here is where one of nature's spectacular sights can be seen, the ocean's black current unleashing wave after wave and sending them crashing up against the cliff.
