Very nice walk

For the view of the sea, of the mountain and the very interesting rock formation. We do not come here to see that but if you are there, worth it.

It was listed in the world heritage site as the part of "Sacred Sites and Pilgrimage Routes in the Kii Mountain Range". It is a vast quay of the tufa that the big and small sea caves sharpened for the raging waves of Kumano-nada lasts approximately 1.2km. When we stand here, we feel the prodigies of nature.

Onigajo rocks is an interesting formation that has been a local attraction for many years. Unfortunately, some of the older areas have been fenced off due to deterioration, and have been closed off rather than renewed. Still, it's a good place to see the power of nature at work.

This are is said to be the base for a local navy or pirate, depending on how you see them. Rock formation eroded by sea wave is interesting. You can walk around to explore the area.

I had not heard of this place before going there. I am definitely happy we stopped, however. Seeing the rocks that have been gouged out by the waves was very interesting. I think it would be especially interesting for children who are learning about erosion and how water changes the earth's surface. It is not worth making a special trip... More

It may not be a big attraction but still worth a visit plus, it is free. Also, the rest station was pretty unique and there is a nice Italian style cafe to rest and take a good view of the area. Good
