しまなみ海道サイクリングの途中で行きました。8段変速で登るのはなかなかツライが、頑張って行く価値はあります。駐車場だけでなく、上の展望台をお忘れなく。360度のパノラマが観れます。 Visited on the way of Shimanami Sea Routes. Hard to climb by bicycle, but worth to do hard job. Try ! Takes more than 30 minutes to go from R137, just 10 minutes to get down. Sun set would be the best. 英語は文字にカウントしないのはおかしいともう。

Access is a little bit tough because winding road but not be far from the main route. Nature and magnificent bridge are very impressive. One of the best place to visit this area.

Observatory built into the mountain. Stair-climbing required but views are worth it.
