Great views and lovely drive up there. It seems to be very windy and that’s a welcomed relief from the hot, humid weather we have at times.

The views are spectacular. Not only from the mountain top, but also from the lower cliffs. The Japanese and the island dwellers committed suicide from both places. Mountain top - Don't miss the religious shrine at the top of the mountain. When we visited, a...More

It's worth renting a car to get here, and to the command post and other sites. Beautiful places to visit, and worth taking time to think about the history of the island.
