  • Then, you can get on the automatic electric go-kart, go up to the bottom of the observatory, and then take the elevator from there to reach the top of the tower. The top is open and very pleasant.

  • I stayed in Kouri Island for two nights in the summer, but I didn't expect a tower, but it was good. By the time I got to the entrance, I got on the vehicle and saw the beautiful sea all the time. The shellfish exhibition (sales) was also made in a fantastic space, and accessories were purchased. The pizza of Agu pork which I ate in the restaurant was very delicious because it was refreshing though the oil was terrible, and it was able to eat as much as possible. The view from the restaurant was excellent and the sights were very good.

  • Lots of parking, but if you don't want to walk far it is best to arrive early. Great view that gets even better as you ascend the stairs. (There is an elevator too). The museum has an enormous collection of shells and even though we didn't eat at the restaurant, it looked pretty nice. The view from the outside patio is really stunning.
  • The ride up the tower is well worth the entry free of ¥800. The tower offer a view that it's hard to find anywhere else on the island. Highly recommended
