Amami Area Nature, Seasonal Flowers and Scenic Spots

Tokunoshima’s East China Sea coastline is spotted with cliffs and oddly shaped rocks that have been created by years of natural erosion of coral reef. Visitors can check out the scenery through rocks that have been hollowed out by the ocean to resemble a pair of glasses. The geological wonder resembles art, and is a famous spot for filming and photography.
