  • I wanted to see the night view, but I couldn't take time, so I went there in the daytime. There were a lot of people who were climbing a mountain, and the cherry blossoms were in full bloom and were beautiful.

  • Reach the summit with your family during Golden Week. The night view is great, but the view during the day is also great. You can climb the mountain withlittle walking by connecting the cable car. You can go to the top with a wheelchair. When you stop by Kitakyushu, we recommend it by all means.

  • To go up, you can use cable car and then climb for a while (i had not breakfast yet but it's still okay). Once you reach the peak, you can see the whole Kitakyushu city. I was going there in afternoon and it's very good, but some people recommend to go there during evening-night. Make sure you have a good camera.
  • Great night view 😍🌃
