  • There are a vast landscape and go to the Observatory. Ranch and cattle appears as small, very cute. So many insects in the summer outside a little food and drink may be difficult!

  • Nakashibetsu-also called the Holy rider roots bracelets wilderness lookout spot. Kunashiri Island looks on sunny days. Also, 19 North Road near the Observatory, exactly on the road to heaven, and it is best to drive.

  • 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.
