Goishi Coast

碁石海岸・穴通磯(大船渡市)

Goishi Coast
The Goishi Coast is a scenic 6-km coastline along the southeastern part of Matsusaki Peninsula. “Goishi” refers to the stone pieces used in a Japanese board game called go; the pebbles that cover the beach resemble the go game pieces, hence the name. It was designated as a national place of scenic beauty and a national natural monument in 1937. It is also listed in Japan’s 100 Best Beaches, 100 Best White Beaches with Green Pines, 500 Beautiful Roads for Walking, and 100 Sound Sceneries of Japan. There are many caves, islands, and pine woods colored with flowers such as daisies, candlestick lilies, and day lilies. The 4-km hiking trail leads to places of interest such as the Ranboya Channel, where dynamic waves beat against the rocks, and Kaminariiwa, where waves beat inside a cave and echo like thunder.

Anatoshiiso
Anatoshiiso is an oddly shaped rock formation in the sea with three openings through which small pleasure boats can pass.
