About a 15-minute walk from the Kujuku Island Zoological Park and Botanical Garden, at an elevation of 191m on the peak of Ishidake is this observation platform which is even closer to the sea than Yomiharidake. It is the absolute best place for a view of Ninety-Nine Island. Here there is a clear, 360-degree panorama with magnificent islands in sight beneath it, creating a striking visual image that, regardless of whether you're a professional or an amateur, all your friends and family will be asking to see your pictures of.

It's so striking, in fact, that the scenery of the Hollywood film The Last Samurai's opening sequence was filmed right at this spot. Come and see why for yourself.
