I arrived the cliff around 5.00 p.m. All street foods were closed, the cave was so. So sad. The weather in mid May was so great.

A bunch of beautiful rocks by the sea, you see one, you see them all. There are facilities nearby for tourists, and shops that sell you junk.

The view from the TOP of the cliff looking down was a sight to marvel at Mother Nature. The elevator ride personally I felt it's not worth the time and money.

I really like Sandanbeki cliffs, the rocks were different and to walk around was difficult even for me. Just lots of levels of rocks, so do leave a little time to go there

We went walking from Shirarahama beach to Sandanheki. The cliff's view is incredible and it's totally worth checking it out! We didn't go to the caves, since it was really cold (end of november) and we didn't think it would be a good idea.

You can enjoy great view without entering the paid area. From "above", you can see the cliff, the rocks, the erosion and the sea very well. The entrance fee to the cave makes you happier as the elevator takes you way down to the sea...More

The fee for the tunnel was too expensive (after reading the reviews, we decided to skip it) so we only viewed the cliff/rocks which was quite special. There is parking available for 500 Yen/Hour, if you purchase at the store near the carpark, they will...More
