Akiyoshidai Karst Observatory, Mine

#1 of 11 in Things to do in Mine
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.

  • Connected to akiyoahidai by an elevator which is actually located in the cave. Entrance fee is included together with Akiyoahidai ticket. Beautiful autumn view.  more »
  • Geopark Center located next to the Observatory's soft serve ice cream (chocolate) so rich and delicious. Rest while watching the karst in the glass counter, so spread out in front of me. You can also offer information for nearby tourist destinations, so make plans while the rest.

  • We finished the Akiyoshi-do cave tourism now enjoy the karst topography of the Akiyoshi Plateau from the ground and headed out to the karst Observatory. Observatory is located in the karst plateau spread all the time. Leave your car at the parking lot located under the Observatory the Observatory. Observatory is circular, so Akiyoshi Karst terrain, 360-degree, round up and could overlook.
