One of Japan's major karst plateaus, designated as a Natural Monument, Semi-national Park, and Prefectural Natural Park
"Hiraodai" is one of Japan's three major karst locations. The sight of limestone rocks scattered about and sheep roaming the fields on the vast plateau (altitude 300 - 700 m, measuring 6 km from north to south and 2 km from east to west) is amazing. Enjoy seasonal natural beauty, including controlled burning in spring, lush greenery in summer, and Japanese pampas grass in the fall.
