Serene especially very early in the morning. It's on a spit of land in the middle of a crater lake. Not to mention it is an Initial D location for all you car enthusiasts out there.

This place is beautiful! However, I think the place should have more toilets available for the visitors. There was only one in the parking lot to be used by men and women and, even in a day where there were not so many people, there was people lined up to use that single toilet. There were more toilets available, but those places were closed due to maintenance. This is the only negative thing I could mention about this place. The surroundings are great! Recommend.
