Kikuseidai is located at about 700 meters above the sea level to the north of Hoshi-no-eki (星の駅), terminal station of Maya Ropeway.
Because of its fabulous night view of the city lights spread out before, this place is even likened to "a hill（台） where one could scoop up(掬う) a handful of star（星）," hence the name "Kikuseidai(掬星台)".
