④Mt. Hatsukasan

Mt. Hatsuka is located about 15 minutes from Akaiiwa Shrine by car. Some people believe that it is an imperial mausoleum of a goddess. A huge Kannon-zo statue stands near the summit as if she is watching over Nanbu Town. The view of Mt. Daisen and Yumigahama Peninsula from the top is said to be the best in Sanin area.
