  • It pavilioned in the touring 30 years ago. Views at the time of the appearance and still does not think. At 360 ° the Earth looks round and was sung. Observatory to be respectable, store is ready. By Yuzuru Sasaki "look horizon" to the location you want to see a huge full moon rises from the horizon, was inspired by the.

  • 강추 took honey if it is soft. Good weather and nearby hills, of course, know the wall and became famous from the panorama in all directions. Observatory it is made together, so disturbed by anyone not to enjoy. I think in winter or not only the access to the parking lot. Straight roads in the near by attractions.

  • Open Sun-Observatory is an observatory located in nakashibetsu, Hokkaidō. You can see kunashir island is on a small hill is the location of the Observatory, the weather is good, but bad weather and fog on the observation deck, will not see anything at all. We recommend that stop only when the fine weather.
