Nabetsuri-iwa Rock Are Famous as Icon of Okushiri -Nabetsuri-iwa Rocks in Okushiri Island-

October 3rd, 2016

Nabetsuru-iwa Rocks (鍋釣岩) near Okushiri ferry port are located in the eastern part of Okushiri Island (奥尻島) and are strangely shaped rocks known as an icon of Okushiri. Andesites of about 19 m in height have been eroded by winds and waves and changed doughnut-shaped rocks. Because its form looked like a handle of a pan by old people, it seemed to be named "Nabetsuru (Japanese handle of the pan)". It is interesting that such rocks are created naturally. By the way, after a strong earthquake off the southwest coast of Hokkaido in 1993, a part of the rocks collapsed and was restored. The rocks are lit up in the evening and it seems to be looked beaufitul. A view is nice in a winter, too. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge. There is a restroom, too.
