You can get the entire view of the Ago Bay with the beauty of the rias coast from the elevation of 203 m!
The view overlooking the Ago Bay, which consists of a complexly indented coastline and numerous islands, extending to the south is the best you can get in Ise-Shima.
The place has earned 1 star on Michelin Green Guide.
The way to Yokoyama Lookout Point is a wooden path with a mild slope and is easy to walk. As you hike, you will pass 3 lookout decks called "Agowan (Ago Bay) Lookout Deck", "Miharashi Lookout Deck" and "Panorama Lookout Deck" and from each deck you will enjoy a different view.
As you descend the pleasant mountain path with many trees growing, you will arrive at "Forest of Creation - Yokoyama" where "Grass Park", such as lawn open space, is beautifully maintained.
This is where the "Yokoyama Cherry Blossoms Festival" is held from late March until the beginning of April and is a famous place to enjoy seeing the cherry blossoms.
There is also the "Iris Garden" where about 15,000 irises bloom from late May to mid June.
