If you’re looking for a place to celebrate your union, look no farther than Meoto Iwa in Mie Prefecture. These two rocks standing in the crashing ocean waves off the coast are bound together by a heavy rope of rice straw called a shimenawa. This rope weighs over one ton and must be replaced several times a year.
