Tottoko Rock

An unusual rock formation off the coast of Nou

Next to Marine Dream Nou, this rock’s name means ‘Chicken Rock’ in the Itoigawa Dialect of Japanese. The rock looks remarkably like a chicken and at the right time of the year even appears to be eating the setting sun! The sunset views here are breathtakingly beautiful and a popular subject of photographers.
