Meotoiwa rock


In Fukuoka there is a peninsula called Itojima.

It is surrounded by rural and ocean scenery, and there are many nice restaurants and cafes.

It is becoming a popular place.

This photo is of Meotoiwa Rock (the rocks like a married couple) and a big torii (shrine archway) at Futamigaura.

There is also a famous Meotoiwa Rock in Ise, Mie prefecture.

It is beautiful at sunrise.

The one in Itojima, however, is beautiful at sunset.

I checked how many Meoto Rocks are in Japan. 

There are 59, so I was surprised.

Itojima is a very nice place to visit.
