When the sunset goes down and shows in the hole between two big rocks, if you can catch that moment it will be one of unforgettable picture in your life. Usually around sunset , quite many people are waiting at side of the rode. Just be careful not to get hit by a car. Lol.

This is another of Shirahama symbols and worth a visit if you are in town. It's a must-see at late afternoon and especially at sunset when the sun appears in the rock's hole. Unfortunately, you can only see it from distance or sail around with glass bottom boats, but not reach it.

Most of the tourists go there for the view of sunset and I was one of them. Cant take the hot that the sun passing thought the hole of the rock. Though, still a place worth going. Easy to access, can drop off there by bus.

We were there in Feb 2010. The unique looking rock set up a very beautiful picture at the sea. The hole at the center of the rock when view during sunrise and sunset was supposed to be extremely gorgeous. However, it was raining almost whole day when we were in Shirahama so no chance to see it with our own... More
