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 enjoy beautiful scenery of not only Mt. Hakusan, but also the Tedori River, and the Dainichi River.
