You can et some great scenic photos here. You don't have to shop although there are stores. There is a viewing area where you can enjoy the stunning ocean views. It's a great 5 minute detour if you need to stretch your legs.

Worth stopping by if you are on the way to Sunmesse Nichinan or that direction and if you plan to spend 2-3 days in Miyazaki. If you will be driving or have friends driving (lucky you!), good spot to make a brief bio/ stretch your...More

Grab an ice-cream, there is one in ‘Shrimp flavor’. The shop sells local agricultural products. There is also a lookout of the famous Nichinan coastline across the road. Local tourist buses also stop here.
