Sea of Rock;

*oo-iwa-go (大岩郷)*
While we were heading for the temple with Higan-bana (previous post), my husband had noticed the road sign of "oo-iwa-go (大岩郷)" and remembered visiting there a couple of decades ago.  As I've never visited there, he kindly made a deter for me to see the rocks. If I translate each character of "大岩郷" literally, they mean,"large-rock-countryside".  There are 2 theories how this "Sea of Rock" created. One of them is diastrophism.  Nature never stop surprise us with its amazing creation.
           
In 1945, this place was  recognized as a national natural treasure.

Thank you very much for stopping by;  
I hope you will have a wonderful weekend and new week.
My next post will be next Tuesday.  See you in your blog, friends♪

Miyako, such an unusual pile of rocks that are so perfectly formed. And I love the contrast with the grasses and flowers. Have a great weekend, girlfriend!

Amazing the way those beautiful flowers grow in that rocky soil. I once worked for a geologist and he loved rocks and rock formations (of course, since that was his field). He would have loved this place.
