【Kushinohama Dike in Kuroshima Island: Natural treasure/Designated by Nagasaki Pref./ 黒島の串ノ浜岩脈:天然記念物(地質鉱物)-長崎県指定】

Kushinohama Dike in Kuroshima Island is a natural treasure in the category of geological minerals designated by Nagasaki prefecture. About 8 million years ago, a crack in the Earth’s crust allowed a plume of hot magma to escape and create lava dike with more than 300m length on the surface. It is located in the westernmost area of Kuroshima island, and the biggest scale in Nagasaki pref. You can observe the trace of crustal movement of the ancient time when the tide ebbs and let the dike emerge. Amazing, isn’t it? You can also visit Kuroshima Catholic Church which was registered as a world cultural heritage site last year.
