There are two reasons why Washuyama must go: First, to enjoy the sunset. Second, to see the Seto Inland Sea Bridge. From Kojima Station, you can take the Tsui Loop Bus directly to Mount Washu. You can climb up to the first observatory for ten minutes. If you want to have a better view, you can go up to the second observatory. If you want to watch the sunset, there is a "Sunset Sightseeing Bus" that departs in the evening at Kojima Station. It is only available on Fridays, Saturdays, and the day before Japanese holidays. Depending on the sunset time, the departure time is different every last month. April and May are 17:30, June and July 18:00, August 17:30, September 17:00, October 16:00, 11 December 15:30, January 16:00, February 16: 20, March 17:00
[View] Unfortunately the weather is not good, but the view is still good.
[Fun] The Seto Bridge is slightly visible in the fog, and it is a vast landscape. There is also a parking lot, so I walked around.
There are two observatories on Mount Washu, called the first observatory and the second observatory. The first observatory is closer to the bus, but the second observatory is higher and closer to the Seto Bridge. It takes about ten minutes to walk between the two observatories. Standing on the second observatory, you can see small islands such as Seto Bridge, Kashima, Matsushima, Yoshima, Iwaguro Island, Akiishi Island, and Liuguchi Island, as well as cargo ships passing by, showing this It is a busy strait.
Mount Washu, at an altitude of 133 meters, is located in the special area of Seto Inland Sea National Park and is designated as a scenic spot of Japan. From the top of the mountain, Zhongxiufeng offers a panoramic view of the Seto Inland Sea and Seto Bridge. The sunset scenery is particularly beautiful, and it was selected as one of the "100 Best Sunsets in Japan". There are two observation decks on the mountainside, very spectacular!
Washu Mountain is Japan's first national park, and the top of Washu Mountain is the best place to view the Seto Inland Sea Bridge. From Kojima Train Station, take the Shimotsui circulation line to reach Mount Washuyama. The circulation line is an hour-long bus. In fact, it is just right to stay at the top of the mountain, so the bus time is very suitable. The bus stop is called Washuyama Second Observation Deck. After getting off the bus, go up the hillside and you will have a better view from Washuyama No.1 Observation Deck.
