How to go ! 1) take a train to Kojima sta. 2) take a bus at terminal 4 to Washuzan mt. take 20 min , you can ask the tourist information at the train station for the bus schedule. 3) enjoy your trip ;)

I would not classify this as an attraction in the sense of a place with things to see inside. Rather, you are there to have a clear view of the Great Seto Bridges that connect the islands ahead. There is no need to hike up...More

This is a very impressive place to visit. Seto Ohashi (Seto Great Bridge) is an engineering marvel, as well as making a great photo. Not really accessible by public transport but if you are on a self-drive trip to the area, well worth the detour.

Washuzan is located in the place for 20 min by train from Okayama. If you go to an observatory and climb a hill 10 minutes from there, you can command a whole view of Setonaikai. Many small islands are located in Setonaikai and one bridge...More

One of the best views of the Seto Inland Sea I've seen so far. Not a hike though, think a car park, some stairs and a paved road. Still, very much worth the short drive from Kurashiki.
