  • 4/24 I went was a little nervous because it was before the season. Forward that road alone was confirmed the route ago, but was very anxious. It's two routes. 1 route and Abashiri side enters from behind the North WINS marine 2 Crest another side and enters from the Saroma-Ko station on the way back I route 1 enters from the Abashiri and had 2 Crest another side. Followed by a winding narrow road if oncoming traffic do not know. Saroma Lake seen from the observation deck and went up the stairs from the parking lot is very large, is impressed. AM but I went to the 9:45 lookout Observatory? The key, do not put.

  • Came from ashoro Saroma Lake Observatory. This Observatory is the Observatory can see almost all of Lake Saroma in the peaks of the Rocky Mountains South of Lake Saroma in Hokkaido. Enters the side road from route 238, the road narrows and becomes a dirt road in the middle. Up the road seems to be passing oncoming traffic when it is almost impossible, arrives at the parking lot below the Summit. From here the rise Observatory on foot. To 5 minutes walk steep slope exhibition should one arrive. Saroma Lake overlooking the view from here is truly magnificent, there. It was long thought was coming hard.

  • Severe winter freezes over, Lake Saroma. But best for Chika fishing season. Open a hole in the ice about 50 cm of tents, to the fishing is fun this time around.
