Mt. Rishirifuji Is looked up, Renun Island and Kutsugata Port Can Be Looked over -Mikaeridaienchi Observatory in Rishiri Island-
October 6th, 2015
Mikaeridaienchi Observatory (見返台園地展望台) is located in the western part of Rishiri Island (利尻島). This is a trailhead to Mt. Rishirifuji (利尻富士) at about 450 m above sea level and is located at the fifth station. This place is the timberline, and tourists can see a change of the vegetation such as firs, birches and creeping pines, too. Not only the vegetation but also a scenery is beautiful. the tourists can look up at Mt. Rishirifuji closely and look over Kustugata Port (沓形港) and Rebun Island (礼文島), too. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge.
It took about 15 minutes from a parking lot to Mikaeridaienchi Observatory. But a trail was steep, and I got considerably tired. There are a restroom and an automatic vending machine at the parking lot. That is only one restroom around here. Mountain climbers should go to the restroom before mountain climbing.
