From the summit of Mt. Hachimandake you can enjoy majestic views of Genkai Sea to the north, Saga plains and Ariake Sea to the south, Mt. Kurogami to the southwest, as well as the mountains of Taradake and Unzen in the distance. This entire area has been designated a Prefectural Natural Park, and features the Kyushu Nature Walk and a camping ground, making this area ideal for casual hiking.
At the foot of the mountain lies the Warabino rice terraces, which have been chosen as Japan’s most beautiful rice terraces.
