Look of Hakuchowan Observatoion Tower
A two-story observation tower with about 10 m in height is built on a small hill with an altitude of about 55 m, and the Pacific Ocean and Hkucho Gulf can be viewed. Here is famous as a good night view spot to see a factory of JX Nikko Nisseki Energy (JX日鉱日石エネルギー) and Hakucho-Ohashi Bridge (白鳥大橋) in a distance. The factory looks large mainly, so it is popular with factory lovers. By the way, you should wear warm clothes because that is a wind-swept place.

By the way, Club Tourism (クラブツーリズム), a Japanese tour travel agency, provides various types of tours such as day trip tours or ordinary tours. In the case of bus tours, tourists do not drive their cars themselves, so they can savor alcohol. Choosen tourist attractions are national parks such as Rishiri and Rebun, Shiretoko, and popular tourist places such as Furano and Biei, and some activities such as hiking and fruit picking are also enjoyed depending on seasons.
