Believed to have been formed some 350 million years ago as a coral reef, the Akiyoshi-dai Plateau is one of Japan’s largest karst plateaus and boasts a total area of around 54 square kilometers. Countless rugged limestone protrusions jut out of the scenic vast grass-covered plain, and flowers can be found here growing year round. Scenic observatory offers panoramic views of the magnificent plain. The limestone of Akiyoshido, a designated Special Natural Monument, is another of the area’s highlights. The entire area is also designated as a Quasi-National Park which serves as a popular leisure spot where visitors can go hiking and trekking.
