By the way, there is Tempozan Park right to the northeast of the facility.
In the park, there is Mount Tempo.
The Japanese name is "Tempozan" and the height is only 4.53 meters.

It had been the formal lowest mountain in Japan.
But Mount Hiyori in Sendai city became low by ground subsidence after the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011 and the height became from 6 meters to 3 meters.

So Tempozan is the 2nd lowest mountain in Japan now.
Of course, you can climb the mountain easily in the park.
