The impressive structure of this pair of rocks faces the rough waves of the Sea of Japan from Tateishi Fishing Harbor, and is said to be only one of a few pairs of such great rock pairs in Japan.
On the summit is enshrined a wooden sculpture of the bodhisattva Kannon, ornamented with gold leaf. The shrine serves as a visual reminder of the intense faith of the simple coast peoples, as it is said to be a relic passed on after the Shimabara Rebellion of 1637.
