Megane-iwa (Glasses shaped rock )


Central Sasebo

Made by a monster?! Sasebo's famous fairy tale came out of this site!

It is an enormous, strange-looking rock with a height of 10 meters and the width of 20 meters which has holes gigantically hollowed out like glasses, and there is a legend that a monster did it. It is also one of the "Hirado Hakkei(the top eight scenery)" that Lord of Hirado domain loved.
