Description Designated as a National Natural Treasure in 1938. The west coast of Teuri Island is lined with magnificent sea cliffs such as Akaishi Rock, Byobu Rock and Cape Kannon, and it is the breeding ground for around a million birds of 8 different kinds. As well as the common murre, which faces extinction in Japan, and the spectacled guillemot, one of the world’s rarest birds, birds such as the rhinoceros auklet and black-tailed gull come to nest from spring to summer. The entire sea bird colony (nesting ground) is a designated Natural Treasure, and the sight of flocks of sea birds flying around is truly spectacular.
