Travel Guide - Onigajo / Shishi-iwa (Lion Rock)

InformationInformation

The rugged one-kilometer coastline facing Kumano Sea was created by earthquakes and powerful wave erosion. According to legends, an Oni (a Japanese folktales monster) lived in the rugged cliff-face now called Onigajo, and the various caves that look out to sea still seem to offer a perfect dwelling place for demons. The cliff also features a huge rock 25 meters high known as "Shishi-iwa" that resembles a lion looking out to sea.
