Mount Ishizuchi Star Night Tour

Experience a star-filled night from a place close to the sky

The Mount Ishizuchi Star Night Tour is a day-trip tour (i.e., not overnight) to observe the stars, moon, and nightscape from Ishizuchi Picnic Park at elevation 1,300 meters. From the Picnic Park, the night sky is much closer than seeing it from level ground. The “genuine sparkles” of the many stars that cannot be seen from the town are breathtaking. As a guide will be there to offer explanation using a laser pointer, no great knowledge about astronomy is required.
