Mt. Kishima Reviews
as the volcano was active and we not allowed to visit inside the best option around is this nice 1 hour hike. Trail is easy to find and is made of stairs to top. Good view to all directions. more »

Surreal! Autumn scenery like alien planet on Star War!
This is a short and easy hike up to the top as the trail is paved, though the staircase is a bit too steep. It was only a 30 min hike on my last hike.
