One of Kiritappu Wetland Best Viewing Spots -Biwase Observatory in Hamanaka-
April 5th, 2016
Biwase Observatory (琵琶瀬展望台) is located in the south side of Kiritappu Wetland (霧多布湿原), Hamanaka town is located between Kushiro city and Nemuro city. Tourists can look over the wetland from there. The Kiritappu Wetland can be looked over from the north side of the Biwase Observatory and the Pacific ocean can be looked over from the south side of the Biwase Observatory, the tourists can enjoy 360-degree view. Winding Biwase River (琵琶瀬川) is worth seeing, so I think that a view from the Biwase Observatory is one of Kiritappu Wetland best viewing spots. There are a restroom and a stall. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge.
When I read Tweets, Biwase Observatory seems to be popular.

Kiritappu Wetland has the third largest area, 3,168ha, after Kushiro Wetland (釧路湿原) and Sarobetsu Plain (サロベツ原野) in Japan. The wetland was designed as the Ramsar Convention Wetland in 1993. This is called the wetland of flowers, the Corydalis ambigua and the Skunk cabbage bloom in May, 400 kinds of the flowers such as the Cotton grass and the Yezo-licorice and the Yezo-gentian can be seen from June to August.
