Thing to See


A beautiful piece of art created by nature

Hasakari Rock
Hasakari is local dialect that roughly translates to “stuck” or “to be wedged between”. The three rocks use to be one large rock with a cave that had been eroded by the waves. Further erosion caused the upper part of the cave to collapse and become stuck creating the current natural "art" formation. You can easily see Hasakari Rock from the road that runs along the coast. On days with nice weather you can rent a bicycle from JR Takeno Station or the tourist information center by the beach and take a scenic ride along the coast to see it. Another nice thing to do is to pack some things for swimming. Weather and water conditions permitting there is a nice swimming beach nearby called Kirihama.  It is also point of interest and is listed as part of the San'in Kaigan Geopark.
