Powerful Mt. Meakandake Come Into Sight -Onneto Observatory in Ashoro-

May 5th, 2017

Onneto Observatory (オンネトー展望台) is a viewing place that visitors climb a mountain for about 800 m from the north trailhead (北登山口) near a restroom of Lake Onneto Observation Deck (オンネトー展望デッキ). It takes 30 minutes on foot and has a steep grade and a rough path. There are a monitoring hut for volcanoes and a resting place on the observatory. A view of Mt. Meakan (雌阿寒岳) is splendid, but I regret that Lake Onneto looks small more than I expected. Admission free.
