The 'Wedded Rocks' (Meoto-Iwa) or ‘Husband and Wife Rocks’ are named after two Japanese Shinto deities, Izanagi and Izanami. Representing their enduring union is a heavy rope of rice straw, or shimenawa, which joins them. Like many married couples, they've weathered their share of storms. Together they sit in the sea near the shore of Ise, Japan.
I guess that's what I've been missing. A heavy rope of rice straw.
