Himeshima's top scenic spot, Kannonzaki, stands 40 meters above the ground atop a milky white obsidian cliff with a width spanning over 120 meters. The obsidian of this rocky cape region is a rarity in the country and has been designated as a Natural Monument of Japan in 2007.
Popular tourist destination "Sennindo," one of the seven wonders of Himeshima, is just beyond the bluff, and Meoto Iwa rocks and its surrounding scenic beauty can be seen on the coast of Kitaura. It is a place of stunning scenery and landscapes, to say the least.
