Natural landscape

Senjojiki is a large, tiered rock formation that appears as if a thousand tatami mats are spread out. Senjojiki was named because there is enough space for a thousand (sen in Japanese) of tatami mats (jo, a unit for tatami in Japanese).
This unique natural feature was created by the soft sandstone slopes jutting out into the Pacific Ocean having been eroded over the years by the crashing waves.

Here, you can stroll along the coastline on the layered rocks and look out upon the spectacular Pacific Ocean. Also, it is a perfect spot to enjoy the beautiful sunset on the horizon.

You can stop by a nearby seafood restaurant with a beautiful view of the Senjojiki landscape and the Pacific Ocean, or meander in the souvenir shops with products from the Nanki Shirahama Area.

Highlights

  • A giant open space with the look of a thousand tatami mats.
  • Walkable to the coastline.
  • Bring good walking shoes for the rocky surfaces.
  • Nearby seafood restaurant with spectacular view.
