The Myoujin-kabe Bluff is a strangely-shaped rock on the mountain slope of Wakahara district, alongside the Dainichi River. It is traditionally said that Tengu (a long-nosed goblin) lived there, and if something dangerous occurred the Tengu would beat a drum as warning. A hiking trail goes up to the top of the mountain where the rock is, giving a great view out over the valley. You can also enjoy beautiful scenery of Mt. Hakusan, the Tedori River, and the Dainichi River from the walking path at the base of the mountain.
