The Sotomo Gate is made up of bizarrely shaped rocks, cave entrances, and caves, formed by the raging waves of the Sea of Japan. The cruise that takes you to enjoy this six-kilometer, naturally formed work of art, is exhilarating and breathtaking. This site was chosen by CNN in 2017 as one of Japan’s 34 most beautiful places.
