Shuttle bus to the panoramic view spot in Amanohashidate 2017!

Why not visit the highest viewpoint of Amanohashidate?
I don't recommend to go straight up to the highest view point for first, better to step up each viewpoint. Start from Kasamatsu Park, then 2nd Kasamatsu Park(5mins walk from Kasamatsu Park using the stairs, no transportation available to get there) and viewpoint at Nariai-ji Temple, finally to the panoramic viewpoint!

Fare:1500yen/person(Adult), the fare include admission fee to Nariai-ji temple. So you can visit Nariai-ji temple as well and can get on and get off at Nariai-ji temple. (The mountain bus to visit Nariai-ji Temple is running every 20mins from Kasamatsu Park.)

I think this is the best way and easiest way to get to the panoramic view point. Originally, to visit Nariai-ji temple by bus is cost 1100yen(include the admission fee), so it's mean you only pay 400yen extra to visiting the panoramic view point by bus.

Of course, if you have time and have enough energy to walk up all the way to the panoramic view point, that's the cheapest way! From Kasamatsu Park walk 20mins to Nariai-ji temple then pay admission fee of the temple for 500yen/person, then next to the temple, there is a way to go up to the panoramic view point for about 30mins walk.
