Mt. Taka Lookout
Shiraishi-jima Island features one of the most representative examples of natural scenic beauty in the Seto Inland Sea National Park.
On a clear day from the lookout, Mt. Hokidaisen, Mt. Ishizuchi, and several other famous mountains can be seen in the distance, as well as the Seas of Bingo and Mizushima, and the Seto-Ohashi Bridge.
There is a hiking course on the Island, so you can go hiking as you enjoy the chirping of small birds illuminated by the sun filtering through the green trees.

From the Sumiyoshi Boarding Dock at Kasaoka Port, take the regular passenger vessel (Sanyo Kisen) and travel 22 minutes (high-speed ship) to Shiraishi Port.
Across from the Mt. Taka Lookout is a hiking trail. Shoes and clothes that you can move around easily in should be worn on the course. There are not stores along the way, so you should bring along your own drinking water to keep yourself hydrated.
