Very beautiful scenery on the top of the mountain, yet quiet enough to have picnic here. Plus it is free entry!

The Hiraodai is national park of the Japan. There is a limestone cave!! You can enjoy mountain climbing, a limestone cave, and a wonderful scene. You can go to about 30~40 minutes by car also from the city area in Kitakyushu. A near station is Ishihara-machi but It is far from a station up to a mountain. I recommend you to go by taxi from a station. http://www.hiraodai.jp/sato/english/index.html
