  • It is also close to Kushiro city, and we stopped by the road to the airport. I also went to the observatory for a fee, but it is up to each person whether it is worth going. It takes about 15 minutes to walk to the Satellite Observatory. There is a wooden road, but I recommend shoes that are easy to walk because it is quite rattling. It is a souvenir point of DQ Walk.

  • I went there in autumn, so there was no green. It was a pity that we needed a fee of nearly 500 yen to enter the observatory. The value that was worth it was subtle.

  • Nice facility with interesting showcases of the local wildlife. Short walk to a separate viewing platform but everything is very far away and onsite binoculars cost 100yen for one minute of viewing.
  • It was just okay. We went in a foggy day but still the views weren't amazing. They sell some food at the bottom. I'm biased because we biked up a big hill to get there, so if it's convenient for you to get there then it's not an issue to make a quick stop.
