The nose-shaped cliff of the elephant of Manzamo is the result of the erosion of waves that has risen over the years. In the 18th century, during the Ryukyu dynasty, King Shokei praised the name as “this is like a grassland where everyone can sit. Currently, the elephant nose-shaped cliff is called Manzamo, but originally the square that spreads in the grassland above the cliff is called Manzamo.
