Keya Oto


Keya no Oto is a nationally famous scenic rock formation (with hexagonal and octagonal basalt rocks forming columnar joints) located in the Genkai Quasi-National Park. At 64m high, 90m deep, and 10m wide, it is Japan’s largest basalt cave (among Japan’s three great basalt caves: Keya no Oto, Nanatsugama in Karatsu, and the Genbudo Caves in Toyooka City, Hyogo Prefecture), offering a mystical sight to behold.
The Keya swimming beach located nearby has very clear waters. This shallow beach makes it a popular spot for family outings and has been selected as one of Japan’s 100 Best Beaches.
