Very interesting coastal and rock features not common elsewhere. A slow walk may take one to two hours.

Like some visitors here, this was for us a stopover visit while on the way to Cape Ashizuri.
We weren't sure what to expect. We stopped at this tiny Tourist Information Centre and there, were 2 elderly folks. The woman was so kind and tried hard to explain the walk and the way.
So we parked and began the walk. Indeed, many queer and bizarre rock formations everywhere, you think you would be on another planet, another time.
I believe many would just walk a bit and snapped photos, but my wife noticed concrete slabs which seemed out of place. They are built to guide us for the walk, so we looked out for them and walked the coast...A pretty easy walk and loop, it brought us right back to the car park.
A great short 45 min walk, taking photos considered. A good stop if you are going down further south to the Cape.

Hidden gem
Feb 2016 • Family
Tatsukushi Coast is truly a hidden gem that is way underrated. We stumbled upon this site when we realized how far away Cape Ashizuri was. We had done some research and had Tatsukushi Coast as an optional stop in our itinerary, and am so glad we had visited!

Tatsukushi, roughly meaning dragon lying down (from the mountain behind), is a beautiful spot to enjoy the coastline to the Pacific Ocean. Here you will see many unique rocks that have been formed through millions of years of sandstone and mudstone erosion.

After we parked our car, we were greeted by a very kind lady and man (forgot to ask for their names!) who are from the sightseeing volunteer office. They brought us info sheets on Tatsukushi and the lady offered to be our guide (free of charge). The walk around the area takes roughly 40 minutes. We were so happy that the kind lady took us around the area, as the “walking path” is not clearly labeled – for most parts, you just walk on the rocky surface, and other parts there is some cement paths (wear comfortable shoes!). Without her showing us the way, we would’ve definitely just have taken a few photos and would’ve not seen the true beauty of Tatsukushi.

While our guide struggled a bit communicating with us, she tried her best to explain to us in English the main viewings and the complicated geology of Tatsukushi Coast.
This was a truly amazing experience that we would definitely recommend to others!
