This pair of rocks is called Myoto-iwa vw (Rock of husband and wife)
Approx 700m far from these rocks, there is a holy rock, ʐ_/Okitamashinseki, in the sea.
Myotoiwa is likened to a torii gate of this holy deity rock.

Three times a year, 5 long shimenawa are changed by volunteers of the Okitama Shrine.
Visitors also can participate the ceremony when they carry the ropes to the rockes.
