Genbudo Park, Toyooka
Observe the bizarre polygonal geological formations at Genbudo Park. Dating back about 1.6 million years, the configuration is the result of a volcanic process known as columnar jointing, in which cooling molten rock forms prismatic columns, sometimes 30 m (98 ft) long. Be sure to bring along your camera and capture this rare and mysterious occurrence. Put Genbudo Park at the forefront of your travel plans using our Toyooka trip itinerary maker website .

城崎からタクシーで玄武洞まで行こうかと思ったんだけど、天気が良かったからレンタサイクルすることに( ´ ▽ ` ) 城崎から自転車で30分くらい走ったところで玄武洞に到着♪ 玄武洞は写真で見るより実物はすごく大きくて迫力があった 自然にこの岩肌が築かれたって思うとズゴイなって思った(*⁰▿⁰*)一見の価値アリ more »I thought I'd take a taxi from Kinosaki to Genbu-dong, but the weather was good, so I decided to rent a bicycle from Kinosaki, so I arrived at Genbu-dong by bicycle for about a minute♪ Genbu-dong was much bigger and more powerful than I saw in the pictures. When I thought that this rock skin was built naturally, I thought that it was amazing.
Extraordinary geologic formations. Well worth the short trip from Kinosaki Onsen.
Agoya ryokan ! Amasing honor !
