  • At the top of the shiratani and very good. I think that last bit is a steep climb, but worth. (Some which is hollow) echo and knocking some theories say the shape and a rock drum rock named the theory out there. I think good guided tours, so quite pinpoint where and how you want to know.

  • Tsuji pass consists of 15 minutes in the signs, followed by a steep climb, so took it over. The sense of accomplishment was seen views and Misty I'm afraid, but maybe I got tasted.

  • I went to 7/2017. It is also said that the climax of the shirataniunsuikyo place. Immerse into the final steep climb, and big for me thou bansuitei alligator can come out. Sightline from Taiko rocks but the far mountains of Yakushima Island, Japan. In unusually clear sky on Yakushima Island, is very good.
