Lovely view

One of the best views of the Seto Inland Sea I've seen so far. Not a hike though, think a car park, some stairs and a paved road. Still, very much worth the short drive from... read more

I guess I lucked out on the day I picked to check out Washuzan. It got cloudy as I was on the way the way there and it was a full on rain by the time I walked up. If you're hoping to get a good shot in such weather, forget it. A clear weather day is the best time... More

Some of the online information about how hard it is to reach the top by bus is not correct. We visited the top by bus from kojima station. Take bus 4 just outside the station, departure time is from 08.30 till 17.30 every hour. It takes 30 min to reach the top, from there you'll need to walk for another... More

This is mountain to be reach by a hiking trail or to an abandoned hotel with your car. Nice view of the seto nankai bridge and sea; you can do some nice shots. Bring your grill and beers and make a BBQ, make sure one person doesn't drink to get you back in his car.

Washuzan is located in the place for 20 min by train from Okayama. If you go to an observatory and climb a hill 10 minutes from there, you can command a whole view of Setonaikai. Many small islands are located in Setonaikai and one bridge has connected those islands between Okayama and Kagawa. Since this bridge is lit up from... More

We walked from the Kojima Train Station following street signs and the sight of the Ferris wheel on the top of the mountain, taking about an hour. Following the tunnel through the hill the Seto Ohashi bridge comes into sight. Following the trail up the hill leads to Mt. Washu (or Washuzan). The peak provides a great vantage point for... More
