Kyushu Travel Guide



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.









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.
