1. Amakusa Visitor Center Learn about the unique nature and history of Amakusa before setting out to enjoy the scenery of the islands.
2. Mt.Takabuto Strata of both the Cretaceous and the Paleogene are observed with unconformity at a side road of National Route 266 leading to the Mt. Takabuto.
3. The observation platform on top of Mt. Takabuto A global view of many islands strung together by the Amakusa Five Bridges from Matsushima town through the Oyano islands can be had from the Mt. Takabuto view place.
4. Waterfall of Iwaiguchi-Kannon This is a gentle steep waterfall pouring into the Kyoragi Dam reservoire. In this area, sandstone layers of the Shiratake Formation have the same inclination as the slope of the waterfall. It seems that the surface of the flow is visible like a launching platform, but on closer inspection, various sized pot holes caused by erosion can be seen.
