Hotokegaura is located on the ‘hacthet’ part of the island in the Shimokita Peninsula. They are rock formations that have been carved by the wind and nature. They are said to resemble Buddahs. We’ve only seen them from a birds-eye view and this is one place I want to go back to and walk around before we leave Japan. The first we seen them was on a 12-hour day trip around the whole hatchet part of the island, so by the time we got here our friend was feeling carsick and the sun was starting to set shortly after. Here are several pictures from the birds-eye view of the rest station coming down the mountain.
