Yunohira Observatory

There are 7 heart-shaped stones in this stone wall. Can you find them all?
Yunohira Observatory is the highest point on Mt. Sakurajima open to the general public.
From the observatory, you can see a rough lava field and, at times, rising plumes of volcanic smoke.
This spot commands a picturesque view of Kagoshima City and the calm waters of Kinko Bay.
The night brings a beautiful view in which the pitch dark of Mt. Sakurajima contrasts with the lights of Kagoshima City.
Taking inspiration from the name Sakurajima (cherry blossom island), the roof over the observation deck is shaped like a cherry blossom petal.
