Tojinbo is a scenic spot where the cliffs continue to be roughly cut by ocean waves.
The spectacular cliffs of Tojinbo extend for about 1 km along the coast of the town of Mikuni.
Called pyroxene andesite columnar joints, the cliffs are said to be geologically rare rocks that are found in only three locations in the world, including Tojinbo, and have been designated a natural monument of Japan.
You can also enjoy the scenery from 55 m above in Tojinbo tower or from a pleasure boat cruise around the cliffs.

Point

While you can feel how impressive the precipitous cliffs are by looking at them from above, looking up at them from a pleasure boat below provides a different take on their power. The rare view of the lion-shaped rock is a must-see for those taking the pleasure boat cruise.
