Akiyoshidai Karst Observatory, Mine

(3.8/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
Look out over the desolate beauty of the limestone landscape from Akiyoshidai Karst Observatory. What began as a coral reef under the sea has morphed over millennia into a landlocked plateau, weathered into strange shapes and replete with sinkholes and caves. Take in 360-degree vistas of the area from the observatory and enjoy light snacks here, along with the opportunity to purchase souvenirs. After admiring the sweeping views, spend some time roaming over the landscape, open for exploration. Use our Mine vacation planner to arrange your visit to Akiyoshidai Karst Observatory and other attractions in Mine.

  • Longing to see this child. To see this view because it was still not inconceivable now that took a while. It is a plane by now. It is slow to get off the plane. Of a difference.
