Umagase

                                                                                                                                                       HOME 

 

Exciting scenery created by raging wave of Hyuga Sea. The coastline here is a ria coastline,

marked by intricate waterways sandwiched between cliffs. The cliffs here are 70m high and

the waves’ splashing against them is an enchanting sight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

Exploring Umagase

The bare rock faces of the cliffs have given way to columnar joints, which are formed when

magma from a volcanic eruption cools and hardens. The source of the name “Umagase” is

thought to come from the fact that the rocks here are similar in colour to horses.
