At 572 meters, Mt. Tenjo is Kozushima's highest point. It's home to several natural landscapes, including deserts and ponds, as well as fields of flowers unique to the island. The mountain's crater loop route can be completed in just three hours. From the starting point, you'll see lush vegetation, and as you hike further, you'll start to notice the way the volcanic terrain changes to alpine scenery. Some of the sites you'll encounter include Ura-sabaku, a desert made up of white sand. For a better view, head over to the Ura-sabaku Desert lookout where you can see the seascape from the top of the mountain. Nearby, you'll find another desert, Omote-sabaku, which is greener than Ura-sabaku and home to a variety of plants. If you go westward, you'll find Oshima Azalea garden. In spring, azaleas bloom beautifully in this area. As you continue on the trail, you'll find Hairanaigasawa.
