The fantastic place is very easy to access by bus, just a three-minute walk from the bus stop. The geological scenery is really a natural beauty that you can make good photos from any angle. Most time it is full of tourists, if you stay overnight in Shirahama, it is better to visit here in the early morning before others come over here.

The rock formations are absolutely stunning, and you can walk out all over them towards the sea. Unfortunately there's quite a lot of graffiti carved into them, but it's easy enough to look past to enjoy the really amazing scenery. My friend and I spent quite a while just clambering all over and taking photos.

The resort train from Hirosaki to Akita stops at Senjojiki station (which stands by the coast) for 15 minutes. Practically every one on train rushed out to the coast to have a close look at the huge rocks, the rugged seabed and the strong incoming waves. A combination of these strange shaped rock formations, angry sea and the strong winds do not pose a beautiful picture by its traditional sense. Yet, they do combine to offer an exciting scenery, an exciting environment and given that the train will not wait, an exciting moment.

If you are in the Shirahama beach area, its worth to drop by for a look. Free parking is close by and you can walk down to the sheet rocks

This whole place is so charming, the late afternoon sun light casting over the whole area, the sea, the sea breeze, the many eagles hovering so low over the whole place and the large spread of colourful layer looking rocks. If only we could spend longer time, was a pity that we only manage to make a brief stop as we need to hurry back Wakayama station to return our rented car! We will definitely return and plan to walk on those colourful layers of rock our next trip.
