British coast (Kitakami River)

Hanamaki City

Southern Iwate

It is located near the confluence of the Kitakami River and Segawa River, and tuffaceous mudstone is exposed along the river. Currently, they are not often seen, but they can sometimes be seen during the dry season. Kenji Miyazawa named it the ``English Coast'' because he said, ``It feels like I'm walking on the chalk coast of England.''
