[Mikaeridaienchi Observation Deck in Rishiri Island] Mt. Rishirifuji Can Be Looked up Cloely, and Renun Island and Kutsugata Port Can Be Viewed at Lookout Point

October 6th, 2015

Mikaeridaienchi Observation Deck

Mikaeridaienchi Observation Deck (見返台園地) is a lookout point in the western part of Rishiri Island (利尻島). Magnificent Mt. Rishirifuji can be looked up, and the sea view can be viewed. The official name of the Mt. Rishirifuji is Mt. Rishirizan. It is an active volcano of 1,721 m elevation, and has been chosen as one of 100 Famous Japanese Mountains (日本百名山) and 100 famous Japanese floral mountains (花の百名山), and a lot of hikers from all over the Japan come to go up the popular mountain. The Mikaeridaienchi Observation Deck at about 450 m above sea level is a trailhead of Kustugata Course (沓形コース) located at the 5th station of the Mt. Rishirifuji. A resting place, a public restroom and an automatic vending machine are beside a parking lot. That is the last restroom from this point, so hikers should go to the restroom before going up the mountain. Admission free. The parking lot is free of charge.

Look of Mikaeridaienchi Observation Deck

It takes about 15 minutes from the parking lot to the Mikaeridaienchi Observation Deck on foot. Visitors must go up 100 steps. The steps were steep, so I got considerably tired. This point is the timberline, and the visitors 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 visitors can look up at the Mt. Rishirifuji closely, and look over Kustugata Port (沓形港) and Rebun Island (礼文島), too. The night view and the starry sky are popular with local people. But I am afraid to visit here in the evening.
