This is one of the two overlooks perfect for viewing Amanohashidate, one of Japan's Three Scenic Views. The park is located half way between Motoise Kono Shrine and Nariaiji Temple, and is accessible via chairlift or cable car.

At the Kasamatsu Park, there is a gift shop, Ama Terrace Restaurant with excellent views of the Amanohashidate land bridge, as well as photo spots and places to view the land bridge upside down (by looking between your legs). This inverted view is famous and meant to look like a green dragon flying through the sky. From the park, visitors can also catch the mountain bus that runs between Kasamatsu Park and Nariaiji Temple (one of the 33 temples on Japan's western pilgrimage route).
