雷電海岸 / Raiden Seashore


Raiden Seashore (Iwanai Town) includes Katanagake Rock, which is the town's symbolic curiously shaped rock. 'Katana' means Japanese samurai sword, and 'gake' means 'putting' in English. This rock looks like a big stand for a sword. Raiden Seashore is not sandy, but consists of stones naturally polished by the waves. They are mainly just pebbles, but are sometimes larger oval stones like rugby balls. There is an iron stairway down to the shore from the parking area. There is also a monument for Takeo Arishima, a famous novelist of early 20th century and one of his masterpieces was inspired by a painter in Iwanai.
