We took a public bus to this lookout-- about twenty minutes to get there. Unfortunately, the buses don't run that frequently. We recommend renting your own car, or hiring a driver. Otherwise, the observatory offers a nice view of the volcano, as well as scenic lookouts of the ocean and countryside. Wonderful venue for some scenic pictures.

You can see the volcano cloud. You can see the sea and Kaimondake(mountain at Ibusuki city) far away. Take a bus to get there.
