  • Fully automated cart ride, arrive at the tower. Mont Blanc in an amusement park. Because it was sunny and souvenirs and Cafe in the building and go to the top of the tower for sea, but clean. Souvenir and pineapple candy, favorite pineapple Lantern chinsuko is. Not too dry, it is delicious. Bought SOAP and sponge cake, a little bit more and I regret-and

  • Look at Kouri Island Tower but definitely in eye. Around the perimeter of the island, round up and tried, after the. Purchase tickets at ticket vending machines, English and Korea, etc. selected can be had. Present this ticket to ride in the cart, was on the Tower goes up. Words according to words of ticket announcements flowing in during this time, cart seemed to be. Devious steep to climb up in the cart in front of the Interior that Kouri Ohashi bridge. Bell was installed towards the sea and rise to the top of the tower. It was a good vantage point lookout.

  • Had no idea this place existed until we drove by exploring the island. So glad we stumbled upon it because we really enjoyed our experience. The self propelled golf cart was the cutest and it played the tour in English for us. Loved the shell museum and we enjoyed trying all the different snack samples in the gift shop. The observation towers had gorgeous views! Really wanted to eat at the restaurant but didn't get to. Hopefully on our next visit we can.
  • Great view and golf cart up the hill was interesting. On top its very windy so watch your belongings.
  • Amazing views. Great shell exhibit. Worth the price and drive. The self driven golf cart up the hill was relaxing and enjoyable.
  • Great place to visit and see the area. When you come in their is a golf cart that drives itself up a little garden showing and telling you about the surrounding area. This is a must visit place
  • If you wantto see the Bridge, recommand to go MuranoCha. I don't feel to pay fee to see just bridge.
