[Shin-arashiyama Sky Park Observation Tower in Memuro] Typical View of Tokachi Can Be Enjoyed at Lookout Point
Shin-arashiyama Sky Park Observation Tower
Shin-arashiyama Sky Park Observation Tower (新嵐山スカイパーク展望台) is a lookout point in Memuro town located in the western direction of Obihiro city. The observation tower is built around the mountaintop of Mt. Shin-arashiyama (新嵐山) of about 340 m elevation, and a typical scenery of Hokkaido can be seen. A park named Shin-arashiyama Sky Park is developed at the foot of the Mt. Shin-arashiyama, and a ski ground, a tennis court, a park golf course, Memuro Town Arashiyama Auto Campsite (芽室町嵐山オートキャンプ場), Kokuminshukusha Shin-arashiyama-so (国民宿舎 新嵐山荘) and Koropokru (コロポックル) are built, and the park has an atmosphere like a resort. A pavement road to the mountaintop is built, and visitors can go up the mountain by their cars. But the narrow road is one car width, so drive carefully! A public restroom and a parking lot are built near the observation tower. Admission free. The parking lot is free of charge.
Speaking of tasty restaurants in the Memuro, Soba-no-Sato Bibairo (蕎麦の里びばいろ), Sobakura Taishoan (そば蔵 大正（笑）庵), Kisan Memuro Branch (紀山 芽室店), Akazukin (あかずきん), Memuro Gama (めむろ窯), Barbecue KAGURA (焼肉 KAGURA) and Country Blanc (カントリーブラン) are popular in particular. I ate dishes at the Soba-no-Sato Bibairo and the Barbecue KAGURA, and those were tasty. As for onsen, the Memuro has few onsen facilities, so tourists can take a day trip bath only at Super Sento Hounomai Memuro Branch (スーパー銭湯鳳乃舞 芽室).
Soba-no-Sato Bibairo (蕎麦の里びばいろ) is a popular buckwheat noodles restraunt in Memuro town in the western direction of Obihiro city. A solitarily restraunt is built in fields, and visitors can experience Tokachi. Soba-no-Sato Bibairo was once called "Visionary Buckwheat Noodles Restraunt (幻のそば店)" by buckwheat noodles evangelist, but it closed a business, and a current owner took over the restraunt and reopened a business in 2005, so got the Bib Gourmand in MICHELIN GUIDE Hokkaido 2012 Special Edition.

Barbecue Kagura is a famous barbecue restraunt in Memuro town located in the western direction of Obihiro city, and has opened a business since 2008. A building was a red brick warehouse that was used by a farm co-op once, and they serve meats and vegetables produced in Tokachi now, so got the Bib Gourmand in MICHELIN GUIDE Hokkaido 2012 Special Edition. I visited here around 17:00 on weekdays and sat at table. All seats are tables, and family customers seem to enjoy. Read More
Look of Shin-arashiyama Sky Park Observation Tower
2-story wooden observation tower is built around the mountaintop. The height is supposedly about 8 m. After going up stairs, visitors reach the observation deck. Patchwork-like windbreaks and fields can be seen, and they can feel vast Tokachi plain. What a lot of fields! Stary sky is beautiful in the evening. Especially, here is popular with tourist motorcycle riders, and a motorcycle rider that happened to be at Shikaribetsukyo Onsen Shika-no-Yu (然別峡温泉 鹿の湯) told me Shin-arashiyama Sky Park Observation Tower was very good, so I visited here.
