The Sheer Precipice washed on by raging waves of the Sea of Japan

Tojinbo

About

Tojinbo, where rough waves are washing on the thrilling precipice, often appears in TV dramas in Japan. It is also a popular tourist destination for visitors from overseas. When you see the sea from the 25 窶杜eter cliff equivalent to 8 or 9 storied building, you will be overwhelmed by the powerful sea scenery. Tojinbo and nearby Oshima island are designated as natural monuments. If you take a cruise boat, you can enjoy seeing Tojinbo and other rocks of fantastic shapes from the sea. Other attractions here are the Tojinbo tower from which you will see Noto Peninsula in a distance, and a 4-kilometer long promenade to enjoy strolling.
