    Simply Saroma Lake observation deck overlooking the entire Lake Saroma. However, Saroma Lake Observatory to climb from route 5-kilometre road is a road cannot pass one car on the gravel road about clutch. I think I should give up because it lacks confidence in driving more dangerous.

    Saroma Lake Observatory is the only place where you can see almost whole of Saroma Lake, the largest lake in the Summit of Hood is on the southern shore of Lake Saroma in Hokkaido. Hood rock mountain is 376 m above sea level. Shortly into the mountainside from the highway to the shores of Lake Saroma and road and narrow gravel roads. Just up the road seems to be passing from it comes the oncoming approximately less than 5 km, it's impossible, arrives at the parking lot below the Summit. A good lookout atop the two-story imagined differently, and Saroma lake views from the rooftop. It is spectacular.
