Most Popular Famous Tourist Place in Okushiri Island -Tamashimayama Observatory in Okushiri Island-
October 4th, 2016
Tamashimayama Observatory (球島山展望台) is located on the top of Mt. Tamashima (球島山), the third highest mountain, in the northern part of Okushiri Island (奥尻島). Its peak is 396 m above sea level. Visitors can enjoy a panorama view of 360 degrees because there is nothing to interrupt the view, so it is the most popular famous tourist place in Okushiri Island. I can not help making a sound for seeing nice views when I had finished climbing a stairway. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge.
I visited here in an autumn, and various flowers were planted. I have never seen rosa rugosa, Japanese pampas grass and hydrangea at same time. It is interesting! The visitors seem to enjoy a sky full of stars, too, and the sunset seems to look beautiful.
