It took about 15 minutes from a parking lot to Mikaeridaienchi Observatory. But a trail was steep, and I got considerably tired. There are a restroom and an automatic vending machine at the parking lot. That is only one restroom around here. Mountain climbers should go to the restroom before mountain climbing.
