Sitting on the side of Miyakejima Islands’s Mt. Oyama is the Shichito Observatory. It’s from here that you can see why the island of Miyakejima is often referred to as “the museum of volcanoes.” Formed by a history of eruptions, the land below is dotted with craters and lined with lava-crafted grooves created from past eruptions.
The platform offers you panoramic views of the surrounding neighboring islands such as Hachijojima, Kozushima, Shikinejima, and Niijima. It's even possible to get a glimpse of Mt. Fuji, ensuring an unforgettable view.
For updated information on opening hours, closings, prices, and more, please check the official website or ask the facility directly.
