A mountain where you can see the most beautiful islands in the Seto Inland Sea
Fudekageyama at an altitude of 311m in Mihara City. It is said that Rai Sanyo, a Confucian scholar and poet in the late Edo period, named it because the shape of the mountain looks like a brush when reflected in the sea.
The garden at the top of the mountain is crowded with many citizens who enjoy cherry blossom viewing with 2,000 Yoshino cherry trees in spring. You can also hike from summer to autumn and see the sea fog in winter, which you can enjoy all year round.
The beauty of Tajima, which can be seen from the observatory, is said to be the best in the Setonaikai Sea, and was designated as part of the Setonaikai National Park in 1950. Also, from Mt. Ryuo, which is located in the southwest of Mt. Fudekage, you can overlook 7 of the 10 Shimanami Kaido Bridges.
