This is a metamorphic rock called 'Oppai Iwa' named after its similar shape to the female breast (Oppai means breast in Japanese.) There are several theories on how the rock came to be, but the leading theory is that the gas emitted from the ocean water and ocean floor carved its shape. Some believe that touching the rock directly brings good luck for 'producing plenty of breast milk' or for 'getting larger breasts.' You will be surprised at how different the rock looks size-wise in pictures after seeing it with your own eyes.
