Sakurai Futamigaura, more popularly known as "Couple Rock" or "Married Couple Rock," is located north of Itoshima City which is next to Fukuoka City. They are two huge rocks standing in the middle of the sea about 150 meters from the beachfront, joined together by a shimenawa. The shimenawa is a Shinto rope used for cordoning off sacred areas or as talisman against evil. It is 30 meters long and weighs 1 ton. Viewing the sun as it sets between the two rocks during summer solstice leaves a deep impression. This view has also been selected as one of Japan's top spots to view the sunset.
