Ganbou Rock can be seen from anywhere in Engaru, a town in Okhotsk area. This volcanic breccia, approximately 160.8 meters tall, was formed when a volcano erupted some seven million years ago. The word comes from the Ainu “inkar-usi,” meaning “place to survey,” and is the origin of the name for the town Engaru.
