#2 of 15 in Parks in 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 .

  • Site for the hexagonal basalt columns in Japan. Friendly staff will explain the geology. In Japanese, basalt is called Gembudo, and was named after this site.  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.
