Mt. Kuju stretches from Kokonoe Town all the way to the northern Taketa City. Nicknamed the "roof of Kyushu," this range of mountain peaks features Kyushu's highest, Nakadake, (1,791m) and many others exceeding 1,700 meters.
Natural monument miyama-kirishima azaleas beautifully paint the foothills in pink as they come into full bloom between late May and mid June. The autumn leaves, in contrast, bring colors of foliage to fill the entire mountainous region.
