Tojinbo Cliffs
This series of basalt rocks jutting out into the Sea of Japan is a sight to behold. The cliffs were formed by magma being carved away by the sea over millions of years, which created deep chasms and precipitous bluffs that tower up to 80 feet above the waves. The pillar-shaped formations look like bundles of hexagonal and pentagonal rods and are a rare formation that can be seen in only three spots in the entire world—and nowhere else in Japan. You can explore Tojinbo via trails that lead along the rocky embankment to various cliffs and chasms. Just watch your step as you approach the edges!
