Pillow shaped lava rocks can be found on the Tashiro Coast, about 9-minute drive (4.9 km) from the airport. About 40 million years ago, an undersea volcano erupted and lava flowed out. Due to pressure, it hardened in the shape of pillows on the seabed. It was then carried to the coast by the movement of the Pacific plate.
