The Meoto-iwa and Megane-iwa Rocks are strangely shaped rocks in the Tedori River, made from an intrusion of hard rock. The Meoto-iwa (married couple rocks) are about 10 meters in height, and for the most part weren’t eroded by the river. One of the two rocks has a hole on the lower side, so it is called the Megane-iwa (glasses rock).

You can view the rocks from the designated view spot.
