What a dreamy spot to go view gazillions of *stars*. Have the app on your phone to read the names of stars, planets and constellations. It was just magical and came upon this spot by chance after having gone to Sunset beach. I'm so glad to have been to Tamatorizaki point !

The pavilion offers 360 degrees of unobstructed panorama of the turquoise water and beaches. On a fine day, the emerald mountain inland, the turquoise water and the azure sky complement one another.... More

Personally, I felt a view from there is better than that of Hirakubozaki. Although you have to walk a bit from the parking lot to the lookout, the way is well maintained and hibiscus on the way is in the bloom all year around.
