The park covers Shikoku Karst, one of Japan’s three largest karst landforms. It straddles the towns of Niyodogawa, Tsuno and Yusuhara, and areas around the Tengu Plateau and Jiyoshi Pass are dotted with camstone, or white limestone, and cone-shaped sinkholes. The Tengu Plateau is known as an area where milk cows are pastured. You can view scenery that varies from season to season, such as grassland in spring, alpine plants in summer, silver grass and autumnal leaves in fall, and snowy landscapes in winter. You will be fascinated by the beauty of the changing seasons. The park commands a panoramic view of plains and you can see the starry sky at night. Trails have been built in the park and some of them, covered with Japanese cypress woodchips, wind through forested areas, offering visitors a comforting environment and therapeutic effects.
