Cliff That Shines Deep Crimson When Hit by the Setting Sun

This rock surface roughly hollowed out by the raging waves of the Sea of Japan over about 1 km that is located on the west coast of Oki and Chiburijima is a large reddish-brown steep cliff that depicts colorful patterns of red, yellow, black and white with iron-containing basalt and tuff. The highest point here stands at 200 m. This has been listed as a natural monument of Japan. Shoryu Rock and Ga Rock are especially wonderful. The rock surface changes color with the time.
