Underworld of Lake Mashu -Uramashu Observatory around Lake Mashu-

May 7th, 2017

Uramashu Observatory (裏摩周展望台) is a viewing spot at 585 m above sea level. There is an observatory in the other side of Mashu 1st Observatory (第一展望台) and Mashu 3rd Observatory (第三展望台) across the lake. Uramashu means "Behind of Lake Mashu or Underworld of Lake Mashu" in English. Tourists can look over Lake Mashu (摩周湖) on the right side of Mt. Mashu (摩周岳). But I regretted that trees disturbed my view. There are a souvenir shop and a restroom on the site. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge. Uramashu Observatory is closed down in a winter.
