The Five Lakes of Mikata

A spectacular scenic spot featuring a 1km stretch of rough, rocky columnar jointed cliffs. Such large-scale columnar joints are rare worldwide and are therefore geographically valuable. Climb the tower to see this national scenic and natural monument from above or admire the natural formations from a sightseeing cruise. Enjoy meals and souvenir shopping at the various shops along Tojinbo Shopping Street.

Experience content The nearby Rainbow Line is an 11-kilometer toll road through the mountains, with panoramic scenery far above the Five Lakes of Mikata.
