Sakurai Futamigaura's Meotoiwa Rocks
Sakurai Futamigaura's Couple Stones is a scenic spot designated by the Fukuoka Prefecture. Every year around May, the large Shimenawa rope (sacred rope) is replaced. The gorgeous combination of the sunset, beautiful white torii gate, and "Meotoiwa" (Married Couple Rocks) is very rare in Japan. It has been selected as one of the "100 Best Sunsets in Japan".
