Byobuiwa (Folding-Screen) rock

Main content starts here.


Byobuiwa rock (folding screen rock) is a 13-meter-high andesite on the coastline of Fudeshi district in Kyotango city. Its appearance, standing out from the sea, resembles a folding screen.
This rock is made of magma that has penetrated into volcanic ash about 15 million years ago.
Five small rocks sit in the sea to the northwest of Byobuiwa rock, forming a straight line and showing the geological formations through time.
The observation spot along the national highway allows a closer look at the scenery of Byobuiwa rock, and is thus a popular photo spot.
At dusk, the 13-meter-high rock and the sunset form a spectacular view.
It has been selected as one of the 200 best natural places in Kyoto
