Tojinbo, a series of steep cliffs along a 1-km coastline, is one of the weirdest sites in Japan. Gigantic rock pillars tower like forbidding walls ? or monsters. You will surely freeze when you look down at the sea from a 25-meter high cliff. The landscape of this type of rock formation is geologically rare and can be seen at only three places in the world. Sightseeing boats are enjoyable and sunset over the edge of the horizon is a must-see. In wintertime, you can see “wave flowers”; on extremely cold and windy days, waves breaking on the rocks become like soap bubbles and the bubbles drift in the air on the cold wind currents.
