Cape Kanezaki

On the western side is Cape Tateyamazaki, while this eastern cape is called Cape Kanezaki. The cliffs of Cape Kanezaki are about 35m tall and the exposed face is a volcanic rock called lapilli tuff. Formed about 21 million years ago at the same time as Cape Tateyamazaki, Cape Kaneyamazaki has been eroded over the years by violent waves into what is known as a sea cliff. Here you can see the glossy surface called slickenside, which is formed when the hard rock is dislodged.
