Nita Pass is situated in the “saddle” between Mount Myoken and Mount No, and the observation deck here gives you a panoramic view that not only includes Heisei-shinzan but also extends all the way to the Amakusa Islands. The landscape here is rich in seasonal variety: azaleas in spring, fresh greenery in summer, colorful leaves in fall, and hoarfrost in winter.
