An awesome 360° panoramic view from the observatory
Located on the centre of Iwagi-jima, Mt. Sekizen is known as “Iwagi-Fuji”. The observatory at the top of the mountain provides a magnificent 360° panoramic view. You can look out over the islands of the Seto Inland Sea with the Chugoku and Shikoku Mountains in the distance. This is also a popular scenic place for cherry blossoms in spring. The mountain in pink is utterly impressive, with approximately 3,000 cherry blossom trees lining the roads and trails, known as “the celestial robes of an angel”.
