オロンコ岩とゴジラ岩

Two oddly-shaped rocks rising in Utoro

Autumn, Sights, Spring, Summer

“Oronkoiwa Rock” is a huge rock of about 60-m high, standing near the cruise ship boarding point of Utoro Harbor. The rock’s top reached by climbing up the stone steps is flat and open, providing the leading outlook point in Utoro, enabling a view of the Sea of Okhotsk, the townscape of Utoro and the mountain range of Shiretoko. Very closely standing is the “Godzilla Rock”, a very interesting rock as it can look like the shape of Godzilla from a certain angle. The Godzilla shape is clearly recognizable from the top of Oronkoiwa Rock. (NB: The Godzilla Rock is not climbable.)
