Akiyoshidai Karst Observatory, Mine

(3.9/5 based on 160+ 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.

  • East from Shimonoseki to, for sure. What very famous as the Kanto school excursion destination, and. You might also go easily by car, makes on the car was a new year. Cliffs rock formations on the plateau that it seems things are feeling so well. Had opened the shop, the restaurant was 3:00 PM but was closed. If you will have the same time wasn't bad, go to ASO.

  • Weather permitting, karst line drive. Sun has the magnificent karst plateau. Performed by Bacillus subtilis Brown panicles of whitish limestone and Japanese pampas grass withered exquisite contrast. Another burning season away, but before the burning scenery was spectacular. Such a vast landscape, Japan apart.

  • I thought rock stands out and is a great views, in the grass in limestone rock is less obvious as green grass season, the better.
