There is no better way to see the Kurushima Kaikyo Bridge and its stretch of the Seto Inland Sea than from the top of Mount Kiro, at the southernmost point of Oshima island. On particularly clear days, the spectacular view extends to the jagged summit of Ishizushi, the largest mountain in western Japan, and was named one of the 88 best sceneries in Shikoku. The observatory park on Mount Kiro was designed by Pritzker Architecture Prize-winner Kengo Kuma; the sleek, metallic observation point goes nicely with the surrounding flora, which is preserved to maintain the natural beauty of the site.
