Itto-seki Split Boulder いっとうせき

Itto-seki Split Boulder いっとうせき

Legend has it that this rock was split by Sekishusai (also known as Yagyu Munetoshi), a masterful samurai who spent a part of his middle age in seclusion with the Yagyu clan. Here, the story has it, he fought with a tengu (a long-nosed goblin), and sliced in two this ancient rock when he cut down the tengu with a single stroke of his sword.
