Tojimbo Cliff, Sakai

#1 of 94 in Nature in Hokuriku
Hike along Tojimbo Cliff, a series of rocky basalt cliffs that stretch for 1 km (0.6 mi) overlooking the Sea of Japan. Explore the rugged coast and note interesting rock formations eroded by the waves that crash on the bluffs, forming tall stone pillars and chasms. You can also enjoy the scenic landscape on a cruise along the shore, if the weather allows it. Climb the nearby Tojimbo Tower to enjoy a panoramic vista of the seaside beyond the cliffs.
