Walk through Hiraodai, one of the three biggest ’karsts’ in Japan, at Mt. Nukis

Walk through ’Hiraodai’, one of the 3 biggest ’karsts’ in Japan as you head toward the summit. The herds of sheep in the fields with countless limestones is a truly beautiful sight. From near the summit you can look down and see Suonada and Hibikinada. Recommended visit times include the period after the fields are burned in spring when you can see the shining fresh greenery, as well as the lingering pampas grass in autumn.
