This cave is the largest among the Yana no Kisho (Places of odd sight with Eight Caves), which were carved out over many years by the harsh waves of the Sea of Japan, located in Shiroyama Park, Takahama Town, Fukui Prefecture. It was named Meikyo-do (Mirror Cave) because the horizon seen through the cave hole looks like the reflection in the mirror. It is said that Ashikaga Yoshimitsu (1358-1408), the third shogun of the Ashikaga shogunate, highly praised the view when he visited there in 1393.

The scenery is wonderful. It was early in the morning, so there were few people and I was able to watch slowly. It's shallow so you can get close to it, and when you go up the sandy beach, it's good to have a lawn.

I was happy to see it in a very close place.
The wind was strong and the waves hitting the rocks were amazing on this day ^^;
Next, I would like to see Mingkyo-dong in the blue sky.

I made my first visit in March 2020. The sea was amazingly beautiful and impressed. It seems to be quite crowded during the sea bathing season because it is small in area. There is a beach in the immediate vicinity, so it is the main beach for swimming, and it seems to be a good place to take a walk here. There is a lawn plaza on the front side, so you can relax.

Yoshimitsu Ashikaga also liked this scenery.
It seems that there are as many as eight rocks with holes in it, and Myeongyong-dong seems to be the most beautiful of them.
Moreover, it's nice because the most beautiful rock is in the place where you can see it most easily.
When you park your car in the parking lot, it's almost right in front of you.
I went around the mountain in Shiroyama Park and found two other rocks.
The sea side was a little big adventure
