The White Cliffs 白ママ断崖

Habushiura, Niijima Village, Tokyo

The rare volcanic White Cliffs of Niijima

The White Cliffs are a stretch of cliffs at one end of Habushiura Shore in Niijima Island. The pure white cliffs present an otherworldly and stunning sight.



This rare white rock is also the reason for Niijima's white sand beaches and the material used for its unusual statues is modeled after the mysterious Moai of Easter Island. Habushiura Shore is one of Japan's top surfing beaches and is known for its clear, azure waters.

*Please restrict yourself to simply viewing the White Cliffs. Wind, rain, and sea erosion is substantial and there is a risk of collapse and falling boulders, making the area extremely dangerous.
