There are a public restroom and a shop at the site, too. A soft serve ice cream sold by the shop is popular. I admired the factory of the JX Nikko Nisseki energy along the National Route, too.

A two-story observation tower with about 10 m in height is built on a small hill with an altitude of about 55 m, and the Pacific Ocean and Hkucho Gulf can be viewed. Here is famous as a good night view spot to see a factory of JX Nikko Nisseki Energy (JX日鉱日石エネルギー) and Hakucho-Ohashi Bridge (白鳥大橋) in a distance.
