Hinoyama Park, located at the top of Hinoyama Mountain, was once designated as a military base in the Shimonoseki Fortress Zone, and entry to the mountain was prohibited up to the end of World War II. Later, it was developed into a city park, and today, from the top of the mountain, you can enjoy a panoramic view of the Seto Inland Sea, the Sea of Japan, Kanmon Bridge, and the Kanmon Straits, as well as a 10-million-dollar night view, which has been recognized as a Japan Night View Heritage Site. It is also a famous place for cherry blossoms, azaleas, and tulips, and every year in May there are events held to coincide with the blooming of the azaleas.
