Oki Islands UNESCO Global Geopark (Kuniga Coast )
The Oki Islands were formed several hundred million years ago and its unique ecosystem and culture that has not changed since ancient times is why it's designated as a UNESCO Global Geopark.
The Kuniga Coast is one of Oki’s most well known scenic areas. Spanning about 7 kilometers from east to west the majestic sight of bluffs, sea cliffs and caves is truly amazing.
Don't forget Matengai Cliff. This huge sea cliff rises 257 meters above the ocean, making it the tallest in Japan. Viewing the ocean from atop this cliff provides a grand scale that will make you feel tiny in comparison.
