Looking for a new adventure? Located on the tip of Hakozaki Peninsula in Kamaishi City, Iwate Prefecture, Senjojiki is a scenic spot covered in massive granite rocks that look like a thousand tatami mats. A stopover point along the 1,000-km-long Michinoku Shiokaze Trail, which connects Aomori and Fukushima, Senjojiki is one of the highlights of the Sanriku Geopark and a must-visit spot where you can experience both land and sea and feel the eternal flow of time.

To explore the wonders of Senjojiki, join an oceanside trekking tour from Nebama Seaside. This unique course will lead you along unmarked trails, cliffs and forests, amazing natural sights, such as the uninhabited island Sanganjima, which is designated as a national wildlife sanctuary, and through the red torii gates of the Ohakozaki Shrine. The tour is conducted by a local guide and can be enjoyed even by trekking beginners. If you love spending time in nature, this is an experience not to be missed!

The starting point of the tour, Kamaishi City has flourished as an important fishing area along the Sanriku Coast, one of the world's three most extensive fishing grounds, and is considered the birthplace of Japan's modern steel manufacturing. As you enjoy the many attractions of Kamaishi, take a moment to witness how it has recovered from the Great Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami of March 2011.
