The torii gates of Suwa Shinto Shrine are on the left. The restaurant Tokiwaro, frequented by men-of-letters and politicians, is on the hillside. The observation deck above the restaurant commands a panoramic view of the city and harbour as well as Kii Peninsula and Awaji Island in the distance. The photographs taken from this spot appear in photograph albums, postcards, and guidebooks. The present-day "Venus Bridge" connects the original observation deck with a new one built above it.
