A beautiful place to stop and especially in January if you can catch the cherry blossoms in bloom. It's an amazing view and on a clear day you'll be able to see Izena and Iheya islands in the distance.

Lots of stairs and stone steps, better equipped with proper foot wear. I believed place would be nicer if it is Sakura flowering season. View from the top is magnificent, good photo stops. Not a huge place, can complete in less than an hour
