These rocks have been weathered over time by the sea and winds and their appearances have tickled the imaginations of peoples of the past. Most of them have creative names and creative stories about how they were formed or were being used for.
A cliff where the rocks have been eroded away such that there looks like lots of holes in the rocks is called Onigajo Rocks, or literally, Ghost City Rocks. The cliff is believed to be the dwellings of demons, thus the name Onigajo.

It was a beautiful, sunny day
You can kind of tell why the rocks were called Onigajo Rocks..

We arrived at this other place called Senjojiki, which in Japanese means "One Thousand Tatami Mats", at about sunset. Sanjojiki describes the appearance of the flat, sheet-like rocks along the coast, which looked like lots of tatami mats stacked upon one another. I thought I took the best pictures in this place.. because the sunset was beautiful. Alas, I had a speck of dirt on my lens and when I left, I realised all my photos of the sunset were marred..
A photo that doesn't contain the speck of dirt..
You can walk all the way to the water at the Senjojiki
