Mt. Washu Observatory (Kurashiki City Mt. Washu Visitors Center)鷲羽山展望台(倉敷市鷲羽山ビジターセンター)
You’ll find this observation platform on Mt. Washu, one of the signature sights of Setonaikai National Park in Kurashiki City, Okayama Prefecture. It offers a sweeping view of Seto-ohashi Bridge that links Honshu and Shikoku, as well as the Seto Inland Sea and the many islands dotting the waters. The view at sunset is particularly stunning, and it has been chosen as one of Japan’s 100 Best Sunset Views. You can enjoy the scenery from the first observation platform at the Mt. Washu Visitors Center, the second observation platform at the Mt. Washu “Rest House,” or the summit 133 meters above sea level.

Nearby Tourist Attractions
Overshadowed by Hiroshima to the west and the Kansai region to the east, Okayama is an easy spot to miss but a nature-rich gem where the Seto Inland Sea laps at its toes and peach and grape farms complete its interior. One of Japan's Three Great Gardens, Koraku-en in Okayama city is well worth a visit before progressing to Kurashiki, where preserved wooden Edo buildings line the picturesque canal.
