Long time ago, There was grounded a huge whale on the long beautiful sea shore named Nagashizuhama (means long quiet beach).
But, it was not clear the border between neighboring village.
It was started battle for the whale between two villages.
In that night, the cape was split into two parts. The whale also was split into two portions.
People believes that it was the God who mediates between the villages separating the cape in order to make the border clear.
It is still border between Minami Sanriku and Ishinomaki from that time.
It is a view point of sunrise. We can observe sunrise between the split rocks twice a year.
Only 15 minutes from Hotel Kanyo.
