More people are attracted to rock fishing at Kannonzaki than are attracted to the stunning geological formations

Leaving the Hashirimizu Fishing Port, I walked along the seashore to Kannonzaki. After passing the Defense Academy's Hashirimizu Maritime Training Area, I entered the Kannonzaki Boardwalk. This is a boardwalk set up along the edge of the surf. The wooden deck stretches out where there is no escape when big waves come in, which makes me a little nervous. However, no one was walking with such a look on their face. Perhaps it is a place where there is no need to worry about big waves.

While I was concerned about the size of the waves, I was more concerned about the geological strata that were poking out everywhere I walked. Because they are strata, they are supposed to be formed on a level with the surface of the earth, but all of the strata seen in this area are tilted. It is said that the tilting is the result of various influences during the process of sedimentary strata being pushed up to the surface, but it is interesting to look at them as if one were looking at the cross-section of a mille-feuille.

It is a rare experience to see such a magnificent surface, so I was very interested in it, but the people around me did not seem to be so attracted to it. Instead, there were many people with fishing rods. There are more people who like fishing than people who like geological formations, so there are many more people with fishing rods than people who look at geological formations intently. After all, no matter how many strata you look at, you will never be full, but if you fish well, you can eat a lot of food.
