 0864798660  Okayama Pref. Kurashikishi Shimotsuitanoura 1-2

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.
