Akiyoshidai Karst Observatory, Mine

4.0
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.

  • Just a short walk from one of the entrances of the Akiyoshi Limestone Cave, on a clear day the scenery seems endless. Great for a stroll and an educational opportunity to learn about geology.  more »
  • From the front entrance to Akiyoshi-do Cave Road about 5 minutes. View of the karst plateau because it was on a weekday evening or everyone, sunset hog.
