Ichimai-iwa Monolith (一枚岩)
"This huge crag towers along the Kozagawa River and has been designated a National Natural Monument. The cliff can be seen from Roadside Station Ichimaiiwa on National Route 371 on the other side of the Kozagawa River. Roughly 100 meters tall and 500 meters wide, it is one of the largest single blocks of bedrock found in Japan. In the Edo period ""Kii zoku fudoki"" chronicle, it is described as ""A truly sacred place and perhaps the most amazing sight in the world."" Visitors can also enjoy the changing seasonal beauty of the cherry trees, Tricyrtis macranthopsis, and other plants which grow in the area. A campground sprawls along the river and in the summer the area bustles with campers."
