"Hashi" is a Japanese word which means "Bridge", "Gui" means "Pillar". The rocks line up straight toward Oshima Island for 850m, just like rock pillars of a bridge. The unusual scenery was made by the waves and winds over a long period of time, and...More

Whether as a half way stop or purpose visit, you will not regret. Really nice view plus you can also advance close to the rock if you dare. There is a rest area for refreshment and souvenir. Not to forget, you can cross the road...More
