Rousoku (Candle) Rocks

Just to the east of the cliff where you can see the green tuff is a whitish pillar called Rousoku (Candle) Rocks. This rock formation was once called Kannon Rocks. Up until about 50 years ago, there was a head-shaped rock on top of the pillar, but when the “head” toppled due to wind and rain, people began to call it Candle Rocks due to its new shape. The surface is rough due to the small stones embedded in the rock.
