Park with Coveted Nightscapes and Views Overlooking the Islands of the Seto Inland Sea.
Innoshima is located just off the center of the Seto Inland Sea. It’s home to Innoshima Park, which reaches up the 207-meter height of Tenguyama. Here you can find seasonal blooms planted along the hiking trail year round, including cherry blossoms, autumn leaves and azaleas. At the summit you’ll find a lookout point with views over the islands dotting the Seto Inland Sea, seeing out as far as the distant mountains of Shikoku. The sunset from this lookout point has been selected as one of the 8 Views of Innoshima.
The park grounds are home to a unique way to stroll through the Japanese written word, with stone slabs engraved with the haiku of Innoshima local writers, like the Tsureshio Rock Carving and the stone monument to Wanderer’s Notebook by Fumiko Hayashi.
Another famous destination is the daunting, 5-meter tall Kobo-Daishi Statue.
