    The Oya-ko rock formation off the coast of Samani

    One of the best known sites in Samani is the Oya-ko rocks (親子岩, Oya-ko iwa?) that sit just offshore. They are known by this name, meaning Parents-and-Child, because they are a formation of two larger rocks and smaller one. Oya-ko is nesting site for cormorants and other sea birds.
