  • It's on the mountain, so you can go by ropeway, hiking or car. Of course, I went by car, but the parking lot was free. The park seems to be beautiful in the early spring, but there were not many flowers and it was a normal park. It is a very pleasant place because it is located on a hill.

  • There are various spots around kanmon Strait. It is also interesting to see the swirling currents of Danpo from The Wafukari Shrine on the Moji side and The Susogawa Park on the Shimonoseki side as you walk across the Kanmon Strait Tunnel humanitarian path (crossing the boundary between Fukuoka and Yamaguchi prefectures on the way). Among them, when you go up to the Fire Mountain Park on a ropeway (departing every 20 minutes) departing from the Mimisogawa Park, you can see the strait including kanmon Bridge below from the observatory, and the view to the Sea of Japan is outstanding. It's worth extending your legs.

  • The best view I have seen in my life. Felt like I was in a beautiful postcard. Shimonoseki, Yamaguchi has a lot to offer for nature lovers. I have been there twice and still can't get enough
  • A nice little park atop Hinoyama. There is a small gift shop, viewing platform and eating area at the top also. There is a cable car line up to the top, but in all my visits I never used it. The parking is free and offers lots of spots. The view from the top of the mountain is pretty spectacular. You can take in the whole of the Kanmon strait, looking across to Kyushu. You also get great views towards Shimonoseki city and Korea (though obviously Korea isn't visible). There is also what I assume to be an old artillery fort with old bunkers and gun emplacements that you can explore. Quite creepy at night.
