Located in the Yui area, an inn town essential to the story of Hiroshige Utagawa's Fifty-Three Stations of the Tōkaidō, this tourist attraction features many visitors during the day. From the parking lot, walk through the tangerine fields and you will find a wooden observatory. The night view is along the curved coastline of Suruga Bay, and you can see the stretching city lights of Yui, Kambara, Fuji City, and Numazu. Below you can see the lights on the Tomei Expressway and the bypass crossing, and on a clear day, you can see the silhouette of Mt. Fuji. With relatively many dark areas at night, it is best to visit around sunset to better enjoy its silhouette.
