The site of a late Yayoi period hilltop settlement looking down over the Akashi Strait. The site has yielded the largest cache in Japan of iron arrowheads and the remains of a smoke-signal site from the Yayoi period. The site is thought to have been a lookout over the Akashi Strait, a strategic point on the sea route from the Seto Inland Sea to the territories around Kyoto.
