Amaharashi Coast Quasi-National Park
Amaharashi Kaigan (Rain-Clear Coast) was composed as “Shibutani” in The Anthology of Myriad Leaves, and is one of 100 selected beaches in Japan because of its picturesque view of many beautiful rocks, white sand and green pines. You can see “Tateyama” alpine mountains as much as 3,000 meters high over the Toyama bay. When Yoshitsune Minamoto (a famous Japanese Samurai soldier) was chased through this place to Oshu, it had little rain, and he waited at a rock named ”Yoshitsune Rocks” until it cleared out. The name “Amaharashi” is derived from this legend.
