Views of Starry Sky at Night and Windbreaks and Fields in Daytime Are Beautiful -Uchu Observation Deck in Kiyosato-

August 7th, 2017

Uchu Observation Deck (宇宙展望台) is a four-storied steel tower with about 12 m in height on the hilltop of Kiyosato Town Ranch (清里町営牧場) in Kiyosato located in the root of Shiretoko Peninsula (知床半島) and was built in 2001. Uchu means Universe in English. At night, a starry sky can be seen from the Uchu Observation Deck, so this is a place that visitors can feel closer to the universe, and the Uchu Observation Deck is named. A rest table is on the 2nd floor, and a Bell of Universe (宇宙の鐘) is installed on the 3rd floor, and an observation deck is on the top. Windbreaks and fields that were chosen as one of Japan's Top 100 Agricultural Scenery (全国農村景観100選) in 1992, Mt. Sharidake (斜里岳) and a ranch can be seen from the top. There is Kiyosato Auto Campsite (清里オートキャンプ場) near the Uchu Observation Deck. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge.

A garden and a parking lot is on the foot of small hill, too. It takes about 10 minutes, but I was a little tired.
