[Karikachi Pass Observation Deck in Shintoku] Beautiful View of Tokachi Plain Chosen as New 8 Views of Japan
Karikachi Pass (狩勝峠) is a pass between Shintoku town and Minami-furano town, and is famous for viewing beautiful Tokachi Plain (十勝平野) on the top on the hill at about 644 m above sea level. The beautiful view has been chosen as one of the New 8 Views of Japan (日本新八景), too. Only the view from the Karikachi Pass is chosen in Hokkaido. An observation deck, a public restroom and a parking lot are built at the site. A restraunt named "Tenbokaku Akutsu (天望閣あくつ)" is also built, but it seems to have been closed down. In addition, a trailhead for Mt. Sahorodake (佐幌岳) is near the restraunt. Admission free. The parking lot is free of charge.
Karikachi Pass Observation Deck
Karikachi Pass Observation Deck (狩勝峠展望台) is built at a high ground in the opposite of the road. After going up steps, the observation deck for a windbreak comes into sight. Visitors can enjoy the beautiful view without shivering with cold. Few visitors come, so please enjoy a typical scenery of the Tokachi such as forests and fields to the fullest.

List of Accommodations
Refer to following websites for the accommodations in the Shintoku. You can get information regarding online reviews and photos.
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. If you are interested in tour trips, you should visit the club tourism's website for details.
