Senjojiki Coast, facing to the Sea of Japan, is a bedrock beach formed with the uplifting of land due to an earthquake in 1792. The rock shelf of approximately 12 kilometers, on which the lord of the area had 1,000 tatami mats laid out for a party, sweeps along the coast.
Visitors can enjoy the view from JR’s resort train “Resort Shirakami”, which will slow down when it comes to close the coast.
The view at sunset time is magnificent and is selected as one of the “100 best sunsets in Japan”.
