Enjoy a 360-degree panoramic view from volcanic Mount Omuro using Omuro Mountain Lift, a two-seater chair lift taking you on the top of the old grass-covered crater, into which you can shoot arrows from a bow for fun. The ride offers scenic views of valleys and nearby hills, while a 1 km (0.6 mi) long circular path around the crater on the top offers views of Gulf of Sagami, Jogasakikaigan Bay, Izu Highland, and Mount Fuji. The walk around the crater is easy for all ages and takes about 20 minutes, with spectacular scenery to observe from 580 m (1,902 ft) altitude. From Ito station or Izu-Kogen station, take Tokai bus to Shaboten Koen (Cactus Park).
