Kai down by the rocks. There's an old legend about the rocks which involves a married couple called Tatsugoro and Tatsue. During a storm they were washed away into the sea and later on these rocks formed in the place they were killed. Locals believe that the married couple were reincarnated as these rocks, so that's why they're a tourist attraction now.
