Couples that are meant to be go through everything that tears them apart, but still remain strong together. The “Meoto Iwa” (Married Couple Rocks) in Fukuoka, Japan, are one example of the test of time. Despite all weathers they stand strong, next to each other giving the world a beautiful testimonial of commitment against all odds. These are two natural stone mounds on a broad coast, together with a tori with pure white color, it is so beautiful! It’s a star attraction for couples & tourists.
Such a breathtaking view!
The “Meoto Iwa” is actually the “body” of the nearby Sakurai Shrine, the place of worship.
There are festival activities quite often!
Since it’s a monument of commitment, it’s a common spot for wedding photo shoots.
It is one of the 100 best places in Japan to enjoy the sunset.
