Sotomo is the steep rocky cliffs about 6 km long.
It is located about 8 to 10 km north of central Obama city.

The coast is located on the northern side of a peninsula surrounding Obama Cove.
And it faces Wakasa Bay.

The cliffs are formed by granite columnar joint.
These has been eroded by wild waves, so uniquely shaped rocks, caves and waterfalls are seen.

A pleasure boat is operated once an hour from March to November.
(From December to February, it is operated only twice a day. In addition, in January and February, it is operated only on Saturaday and Sunday.)
