After passing through the tunnel at the northeast corner of Togane Fishing Port, you will find a vast 5 hectare sandstone, a scenic spot that has been around for a long time. The sandstone contains a variety of shell fossils, whale fossils, and driftwood, and you can walk around and see strata that are about 16 million years old.
The uplifted sea surface is also called "Senjyojiki" (lit. Thousand tatami mats) due to its grandeur, and is characterized by rows of round rocks (nodules) that look like perches. These rocks were formed when the Hamada Earthquake occurred in the Meiji Era (1868-1912), uplifting the bedrock and making it one of the representative attractions of Tatamigaura.
In addition, there are scattered sea caves called Anakannon, strange rocks such as Inujima and Nekojima ( A dog and a cat Islands) that rise above the sea, and fossils called happy shells in the shape of a heart.
