Oni no Toseki Rocks

If you walk along the beach from Monzen Fishing Port, you can find the old wharf that used to be used for net fishing, as well as the decaying ruins of the old fishermen’s lodge. The rocks that dot the beach here are called Oni no Toseki Rocks, or Ogre’s Throwing Stones Rocks. It is said that long ago when the ogres built the stone steps of Akagami Shrine Goshado, they were unable to complete the final step and threw these rocks on the shore in their anger.
