Haiku Stairs has stairways and ladders around 4,000 have been structured in 1942 so that the antenna can be seen from one side of the cliff, radio signals in use for the United States Navy subs as far as Tokyo shore. In 2003, this ladder is repaired at a cost of nearly 1 million US dollars, but currently there are no plans to open the stairs to public use, because it is still dangerous to climb, no sign of calling people not to climb, but most people reached there before the sunset and sunrise. Haiku Stairs has stunning views and sheer and on both sides of the Hill became one of the most memorable and most popular in the year now.
