Stone Masonry Pier on Chinohama Beach

Japan Heritage
The Chinohama shoreline is supported by a long wall made of waste rock pieces from the nearby Kitagi granite quarries. The skillful masonry work combining large and small stones, many with visible chisel marks, is a display unique to this home of the quarrying industry. The port at Chinohama was a shipping point for small stone products.
