“Must visit”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

I sign up for the half day tour and was brought to this place. It's a MUST VISIT site of Shirakwago, lovely views of Ogimachi village and also Hodaka-dake (the 3rd highest mountain in Japan). Take lots of pictures, there is a shop selling souvenir and grab some beautiful postcard (6 pcs for 1000Y).

“Must visit”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

There's nothing much you can do it here except photo taking but still worth a visit. The view here is amazing especially during winter. You can walk or take bus at 200 yen one way. You gotta take the bus from the view point bus stop beside the Main Street. Last bus to the view point is at about 3:40pm and last bus leave view point is about 4:10pm.

“Good view”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

It is a great view. But there is not much to do except taking a photo. Have to pay for a round trip bus to go up to the view point. But the view is still worth a visit.

“Shuttle bus or walk”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

You can take the shuttle bus for around 200 yen or walk up the hill to see the whole village in this beautiful valley, great place to take photographs.
