On the west side of Chiburijima Island, part of the Oki Islands, there is a 1-kilometer stretch of coastline that has been eroded to bare rock. As its name suggests “Sekiheki” or Red Cliff has gotten its color from the specific nature of the eruption that occurred there. Its distinct geology features are found in its layers of various colors and patterns. It has become a symbol of Chiburijima Island, and is one of the most spectacular coastlines of the Global GeoPark designated Oki Islands. You can enjoy the scenery, especially in the evening, when the red cliff walls and setting sun reflect on the blue sea.
