Good spot to take a look at surroundings. However, I'd suggest coming here in summer or in winter when the area has a lot of snow for the best experience.

This is a spot where you can take many great pictures. A very nice, breathtaking view at the city! This observatory is very relaxing because of the peaceful countryside view. It may get a little bit cold up there during the winter. Just make sure...More

Nice view over the area. However, I think the view would be greater in spring or summer. In summer there is also a nice little cafe, where you can rest and have a cup of coffee or tea.

A nice spot to shoot 25 photos. An overlook of the Hokkaido countryside. Serene and beautiful. This is so unlike the built-up Tokyo landscape.

The view here during winter is beautiful. Moreover, snow here is cleaner and my boys can enjoy a snowball fight! Good place for a photo shoot.

Enjoy the view of Tokachi from here. We arrive on a very windy day and glad we had our wind breaker on. It is a good place to get pictures and view the changing of the Autumn leaf colour.

on top of the hill, excellent location to view Tokachi. Best if it is a sunny day. It can get a bit windy later of the day.
