It is designated as Japan's Scenic Spot and also Natural Monument.
On top of the cliffs, there is a castle ruin dating back to the Age of Civil Wars, and a hiking path is made to connect Kumanokodo and Matsumoto-toge.

There are cherry trees planted along the hiking path leading to the top of the cliff, and in spring, 4 types of cherry blossoms will bloom one after the other and please the tourists for a long period of time.
