One of Best Beautiful View of Lake Akan -Akankohan Observatory in Kushiro-

May 4th, 2017

Akankohan Observatory (阿寒湖畔望台) is halfway up a mountain on a slope of Akankohan Ski Resort (阿寒湖畔スキー場) located in the south side of the Akankohan Onsen Resort. Because it changes the ski resort in a winter, tourists can use it as a viewing spot only in a summer. It takes 3 minutes from a parking lot on foot. Visitors can look over the Lake Akan. A view from here is very beautiful. There are only the parking lot and a simple chair.
