Shiyusan, or "Stone Umbrella," is a narrow spit of rock that projects approximately one kilometer into the sea, like the trunk of an elephant, at the 102-kilometer mark of Highway 11. The feature which gives the area its name is the result of differential wave erosion: a hard coral cap perched on a relatively narrow pillar of softer stone conglomerate. The Stone Umbrella, plus the beautiful scenery here, makes Stone Umbrella (Shiyusan) a popular spot with photographers.
