Hijiridake Mountain is a symbol of Omachi Town. Reached the top of the mountain by climbing up 792 steps, you'll find an observatory overlooking the town. Furthermore, there's Hijiridake Shrine above it, and the heart-shaped stone tub in that shrine is a hidden spiritual hot spot. The tub glows red at sunrise and sunset, and those who see it are said to have a good relationship.
