【Okayama】Ojigatake (王子が岳)



Mt. Ojigatake is a scenic spot where you can see the scenery of the Seto Inland Sea, the Seto Ohashi Bridge, and shikoku in the distance.

It is like a large park, and there are several scenic spots, so it is fun to walk around.

Strangely shaped rocks are everywhere in the park, so you can also enjoy walking around looking for interesting rocks in the park.

Around here.

"Toy Kingdom", which is also located in areas other than Okayama Prefecture, is an amusement park that took over an amusement park called "Oji Fancy Land" near "Ojigatake".


It is said that the origin of Prince Gatake comes from the legend that eight princes lived in this area.

Kangudo Hall

If you walk from the parking lot, there is a higashiya and a large grass square, and beyond that is a scenic spot where you can see the Seto Inland Sea and Seto Ohashi Bridge.

It is a fairly open square, and I think it is a good place for a picnic.

Paragliding gliding location?



I think it's probably a paragliding place, but I put it in because it was when the paraglider was not flying.

It is said that you will head to Kangudo from the parking lot and proceed to the lawn square as it is.

Rooftop Observation Deck

Because it is the roof of the building, it is a concrete observation space, but I feel that it is ahead of the surrounding observation spot.

A rest area

As for the appearance of the road, there is a place where it climbs between a 100-100 rock, and the slope is also a little steep.
