Miura Peninsula and coast

Miura Peninsula is located South of Tokyo. Although it is close to Tokyo, it is not well known. There are interesting lava fields, which extends right into sea. Sea water, sun played with these rocks and turned them into various figures. No vulcano around there, so I really wonder how these lava fields were formed.

At the very end of Miura Peninsula is Joushima island. Following pictures are from Joushima island.

Hello!
Thanks for comment. Around this time crabs could be seen. I wrote about them too in another post. This is on Joushima island.

There are a lot of them in those small holes of lawa fields. Need to move slowly and listen to the small, sharp sound of their chelaes.
