Tojinbo Sightseeing Boat Cruises東尋坊観光遊覧船


Pleasure Boat / Water Cruise

Tojinbo Sightseeing Boat Cruises offers boat trips to view the spectacular scenery of the Tojinbo cliffs from the ocean. Located in Sakai City, Fukui Prefecture, the Tojinbo cliffs have been designated as a National Natural Monument; the precipitous cliffs with their distinctive rough surface extend for about 1 km along the coast. Some of the cliffs reach a height of 20 meters or more; watching the raging waves of the Sea of Japan crash against the cliffs is a magnificent sight. On a trip halfway round Oshima Island (which lies around 1.5 km off the coast), which takes around 30 minutes, passengers can view several rocks with unusual shapes that have been created by the action of natural forces, including Lion Rock, Battleship Rock, Folding Screen Rock, and Candle Rock. Places can be found on the boat trip for individual travelers (with a 15–20 minute wait).

Review of Tojinbo Tour Boat

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2016/10/17 Great! And a bit morbid
Quotes from my guide (in Japanese):

Dont worry, we have plenty of barf bags. Use all you want.

The rocks look like they should fall, but they dont. But sometimes people do.

Straight in...

          Fukui Areas


          Northeast of Kyoto, the ancient Tojinbo Cliffs separate Fukui prefecture from the Sea of Japan in a stretch of land well worth exploring. Water sports and seaside delicacies are available in abundance as the spectacular rugged coastline flattens down into beaches to the west of the prefecture, while inland, Fukui is home to Zen Buddhist temples and historic ruins.
