Rock
Tateiwa is a rock, approximately 20 meters high, on the Nochigahama Coast in the city of Kyotango, Kyoto Prefecture. According to legend, Emperor Yomei's third son, Maroko-no-miko, drove away some demons and sealed them up inside the rock. Tateiwa is well-known as one of the few naturally occurring large-scale rocks in Japan, and as such, it attracts large numbers of tourists.
