Scenic views of Nature

Shirasaki Coast is also known as the "Aegean Sea of Japan" because of the beautiful contrast between the white limestone rock surface and the blue sea. It has been selected as one of the 100 best beaches in Japan, and is a great spot for a walk along the beach. There are many sights to see, such as the huge "Tatego Iwa," a rock with a hole in the middle that rises out of the sea.

The Shirasaki Coast includes the Shirasaki Marine Park, which has various facilities such as log cabins, auto camping sites, observation decks, restaurants, and walking trails. You can also visit the precious Totsui limestone cave, which was formed over 250 million years ago.

It is also known as a breeding ground for petrels, and from March to July, you can see large flocks of them. Mt. Bansho, behind the marine park, is also famous for its native daffodils.
