Meoto Iwa (Husband and Wife Rocks)夫婦岩

Rock

The Husband and Wife Rocks is a fantastic sightseeing spot on Futamigaura Beach and this unique geographic feature has long been seen as a place to worship the sunrise. The rocks are seen as torii gates for the rising sun and are located on the sacred Okitama jinseki group of holy stones 700 meters away from the coast connected to the god Sarutahiko. The male stone is nine meters high; the female four meters. The sun can be seen rising between the rocks from May through July, while in autumn and winter, full moon appears between them.

Reviewed:2019/11/26 Missed the sunrise
Missed my train for the sunrise... nevertheless the sky is amazing that day. It would have been a prefect day if I managed to capture the sunrise.. as my purpose was to capture that bright orange sun...

We bought the one day pass to use Can Can bus at 1000yen. Soon we reach the destination. We went to see the rocks by going through the souvenir shops. Two rocks joined by a heavy rope of rice straw...
Reviewed:2019/09/05 Worth a visit!
I visit this place today, and even though we had heavy rain (大雨) the view was worth it!
I had a nice time here, and you can also visit the adjacent shrines!
Also if you are staying at Toba or Ise...

          Spread across the eastern side of the Kii Peninsula, Mie prefecture boasts hundreds of kilometers of pretty coastline comprising the oyster-rich Toba city and Shima National Park all the way down to Kumano, a city that marks the beginning of part of the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage, which runs into neighboring Wakayama prefecture. However, Mie is best known for the Ise Jingu Shinto shrine inland, one of the oldest and largest shrines in the country.
