Mushikuiiwa Rock
The crystal tuff has many holes by being encroached by wind and seawater. It looks like insects ate the rock. Therefore, the rock is called Mushikuiiwa or Insect-eaten Rock.
It is rare for a rock to be as large as 60 meters high like Mushikuiiwa Rock.
It is a National Natural Monument.
