Kanman-iwa Rock (Ebb-and-flow rock)干満岩
Located in Hatsukaichi City, Hiroshima Prefecture, this rock is known as one of the Seven Wonders of Mt. Misen. Though located over 500 meters above sea level, the water in the mysterious grotto in the rock ebbs and swells with the tide. Furthermore, the water there is salt-water and the reason for this has yet to be discovered.

Nearby Tourist Attractions
There is more than meets the eye awaiting any Hiroshima-bound traveler. Kicking off in Hiroshima city, the Peace Memorial Park, Hiroshima Castle, and Shukkeien Garden offer a couple of days of exploring; however, the real beauty lies along the southern coast of the prefecture. There, a series of islands spreads across the Seto Inland Sea: from the mysterious sea-submerged Great Torii Gate at Miyajima Island to the first half of the islands that connect Honshu to Shikoku via six spectacular suspension bridges.
