Sarobetsu Plain and Pasture Can Be Seen -Miyanodai Observatory in Toyotomi-

October 26th, 2015

Miyanodai Observatory is a viewing spot in the eastern part of Sarobetsu Plain, Rishiri‐Rebun‐Sarobetsu National Park. An observatory with about 5 m in height is built on a small hill along the Japan National Route. The observatory is all glass-covered when tourists go up the stairs, and Sarobetsu Plain, meadows and Mt. Rishirifuji are seen. It is famous for nice scenery. This observatory was called Tokumitsu Observatory or Sarobetsu Observatory at first, but it was renamed "Miyanodai Observatory (Miya means Imperial in English)" when His Imperial Highness Prince Masahito Hitachinomiya came in 1963. Benches for breaks installs in the observatory deck. In addition, figures of the cow of parent and child are built at this place as a monument of Toyotomi town "Dairy Farming Birthplace". There is a restroom near a parking lot. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge.
