As long as you find the right rock, she'll stay by your side

Near the Futami Okimata Shrine you will see two large rocks in the ocean connected together by a rope. This spot is Meoto Iwa which means “Wedded Rocks”, with the larger rock representing the husband and the smaller one representing the wife.

A romantic place for couples to visit, the best time to go is from May to July when you can enjoy the stunning view of the rising sun between the two rocks. If you visit in autumn and winter, you can also get a beautiful view of the moon shining between the rocks. This spot is understandably very popular with visitors and local photographers.
