If you are ready for lots of stairs this place is worth going for the view. Entrance is 11 yen and worth it. It is a long climb to the top but the views are AMAZING. The stairs are in quite a bad state towards...More

it is about a 15-20 minute walk up the stairs to reach the moon (whole in the rock). if you walk a little further you will have a beautiful view of the whole surroundings which I enjoyed more than the moon rock itself.
