The couple rocks have been regarded as a torii (an entrance gate of shrine) for worshiping the Japanese Goddess of the Sun from ancient times.
A great thick, sacred, straw rope connects the hasband rock and the wife rock.
In May to July (especially around the summer solstice), it is possible to see the sunrise from among the couple rocks, and it is crowded with many photographers and worshipers.
