Geohistory - Rocks from Volcanic Islands Period
Geosites / Nishinoshima Town
This lookout point is located on the southwest part of Nishinoshima Island, on the outer rim of the Dōzen Caldera. From here you can see the contrast between the rough outer sea and the calm inner sea.
Nearby lie the remains of stone walls (called aigaki) formerly used in makihata rotation farming. The area is used today as pastureland for cattle and horses.
