[Karikachi Pass Observation Deck in Shintoku] Beautiful View of Tokachi Plain Chosen as New 8 Views of Japan

Karikachi Pass

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.
