  • From the roof like shape Yashima. Yashima station on the mountain of Yashima shuttle out (travel time is less than 20 minutes, fare: 100 yen). Yashima Temple, left and right in the Observatory is on the right side is recommended. End of the street is lined with souvenir shops in the Observatory. Nice sunset view seen from here on a clear day in the evening visited the Government.

  • Go by car is designed, where good walking, I went by train + foot astray, or did not know. Obtain pamphlets at the station and walked on to the map, but not signpost on the road felt unfriendly to tourists. I thought it more difficult if foreign tourists not to reach tourist destinations from way more all over the place making access map and guide, and even my Japanese because.
