A marble stone pillar 16 meters high and 3 meters wide. It is called “Oreishi,” or “Broken Stone,” because about 2 meters were broken off the tip in the Sanriku Tsunami of 1896. This area, Ogama (Big Cauldron), is the most popular sightseeing spot in Karakuwa Peninsula. The ocean splash against the rocky terrain looks like hot water boiling in a big cauldron.
