Look out over the desolate beauty of the limestone landscape from Akiyoshidai Karst Observatory. What began as a coral reef under the sea has morphed over millennia into a landlocked plateau, weathered into strange shapes and replete with sinkholes and caves. Take in 360-degree vistas of the area from the observatory and enjoy light snacks here, along with the opportunity to purchase souvenirs. After admiring the sweeping views, spend some time roaming over the landscape, open for exploration.

  • It is the largest national park in Yamaguchi Prefecture. It's high altitude and the best conditions are on sunny days with good prospects. Because it is connected with Akiyoshi-dong, i can enjoy it all day long.

  • You can see the vast Karst Plateau. There is a restroom and a parking lot, too and it is possible to relax for a while. I walked around, but i enjoyed it quite a bit even in a series of similar scenery.

  • Lovely peaceful and scenic spot. Good for a leisurely stroll after walking through akiyoshido cave.
  • It is a must-drive road if you can get by. View is marvellous.
