Hashiguiiwa Rocks

Beautiful Scenery
Free Admission

The Hashiguiiwa Rocks of Wakayama prefecture are a mysterious but naturally occurring picturesque set of around 40 large and small rocks which look like they were once the posts to an old bridge. Found off the coast of Wakayama prefecture and stretching for some 850 meters (2788 ft), local legends state that the famous Buddhist monk Kobo Daishi had attempted to build a great bridge here over the course of one night, but the presumed genuine reason for this beautiful natural spot is the sea erosion of softer rocks around harder ones. The Hashiguiiwa Rocks are a popular photo spot especially during sunrise and dusk. Visitors should remember to bring a camera!
