Senjojiki - A Thousand Tatami Mats

The name Senjojiki literally means one thousand tatami mats and it looks like several thousand tatami mats joined together. Most of the rocks are generally flat, and you can walk out onto them to explore. It is possible to get close to the edges of the cliffs, to feel the breeze of the ocean, and to see small little sea creatures in the shallow holes of the rocks. Standing atop the plateau near the ocean, one can enjoy the thrill of watching surging waves crashing against the rocks. The strong wind is definitely a great welcome, especially in the hot summer sun. Although not a well promoted tourist attraction, it is still very much worth a visit. Only twenty minutes by bus from Shirahama train station or a fifteen minute walk from the popular Shirahama beach, you don't have to pay an entrance fee or worry about the opening hours at Senjojiki.
