Drive all the way up to the Washuzan Observatory Post. The Seto Inland Sea, as well as the Seto Ohashi Bridge, is beautiful.

Nice place for a walk in the nature and to take nice pictures of the seto bridge, especially at sunset. Kojima hotel is not far from there.

How to go ! 1) take a train to Kojima sta. 2) take a bus at terminal 4 to Washuzan mt. take 20 min , you can ask the tourist information at the train station for the bus schedule. 3) enjoy your trip ;)

I would not classify this as an attraction in the sense of a place with things to see inside. Rather, you are there to have a clear view of the Great Seto Bridges that connect the islands ahead. There is no need to hike up...More

This is a very impressive place to visit. Seto Ohashi (Seto Great Bridge) is an engineering marvel, as well as making a great photo. Not really accessible by public transport but if you are on a self-drive trip to the area, well worth the detour.
