After catching the cable and slope car to the top you are rewarded with lovely views of the surrounding area. There is a cafe at the top and you can walk from the top down to the visitor centre then back up to the cable car station. It is a long walk from Yahata station in the heat so I recommend getting a taxi up to the cable car statio this cost 700 yen to get there and 420 yen to ride the cable car up with an additional cost to ride the slope car to the very top. Unless you know how to call a taxi or get someone to call you one you are left with a 1.5 k walk back to the station. It's downhill but hot so drink plenty of water etc. The visitor center is geared towards naturalists.
