Marvel at the 360° panorama and experience the enormity of nature.
Mt. Akahage is Chiburijima Island's highest peak at 325 m above sea level. This is the best spot for seeing an amazing 360° panorama, with all four islands of the archipelago before your eyes. If the weather is good enough, you can see as far as mainland Honshu island and Mt. Daisen, a 1729-meter-high peak in the neighbouring prefecture Tottori. In the spring you can enjoy a picturesque scene of the wild radish flowers blooming all around while the cows and horses quietly graze.
