It Is Said That Most Beautiful Mt. Rishirifuji Can Be Seen -Himenuma Pond and Himenuma Obserabatory in Rishiri Island-

October 14th, 2015

Neighborhood of Himenuma Pond

Himenuma Pond (姫沼) is located in the northern part of Rishiri Island (利尻島). A neighborhood of Himenuma Pond is called Himenuma-enchi (姫沼園地) and was developed to look around. There is Himenuma Obseravatory (姫沼展望台) on the way to the Himenuma Pond.

Himenuma Pond

The perimeter of Himenuma Pond is about 800 m. It is famous for looking at an image of Mt. Rishirifuji (利尻富士) reflected in the surface of the pond and Mt. Rishirifuji at the same time. It seems to see the most beautiful scenery in early morning. A parking lot and wooden paths are built to look around, and the neighborhood of the Himenuma Pond is called Himenuma-enchi. It takes about 20 minutes to walk round. Me thinks that Mt. Rishirifuji from a viewing platform on the way is the best view of the Himenuma Pond. There is the Himenuma Rest House (姫沼レストハウス) on the high ground and photos of the Himenuma Pond are sold. There is a restroom near the parking lot. Admission free. A parking lot is free.
