This week’s theme for Photo Challenge is Edge.
Tojinbo is a one kilometer long stretch of rugged basalt cliffs along the Sea of Japan coast north of Fukui City.
The rocky coastline has been carved out by the waves, leaving deep chasms and precipitous bluffs that tower up to 30 meters above the water below. The coarse, pillar-shaped rocks look like bundles of hexagonal and pentagonal rods and are a unique geologically formation that can be seen in several places in the world and nowhere else in Japan.
We spent half a day going up and down the area, admiring at the scenery and taking photos.
