[Takanosu-enchi Observation Deck in Yagishiri Island] 360 Degree View Can Be Enjoyed at Highest Place in Yagishiri

Takanosu-enchi Observation Deck

Takanosu-enchi Observation Deck (鷹の巣園地) is a lookout point on a small hill in the western part of Yagishiri Island (焼尻島), and is adjacent to Sheep Ranch. Here is the highest place of around 100 m elevation in the Yagishiri Island. Visitors can enjoy 360 degree panorama such as Teuri Island (天売島), Hokkaido mainland and the sea. Even though this place is very low, I suppose that a superior view may be rare. By the way, there are 3 roads to this place, and the slope of a road called "Onnko Sea Road (オンコ海道)" through sheep ranches is relatively gentle, so it is easier than other roads. An observation deck, a parking lot, a public restroom and a gazebo are built at the site. Admission free. The parking lot is free of charge.

Sheep Ranch

Sheep Ranch (めん羊牧場) is a ranch run by Hoshu Farm (萌州ファーム) in the center part of Yagishiri Island (焼尻島), and they raise about 500 suffolk sheep at the grassland of about 80 ha. Those meat are well-known as "Pré Salé Yagishiri (プレ・サレ焼尻)", one of expensive mutton in Japan, and it has a good reputation. The grassland spreads over along Onko Sea Road (オンコ海道), and it is said that the scenery looks like Scottland. I feel a foreign atmosphere indeed, and I think that the scenery is a typical scenery of Hokkaido, too. By the way, outlanders are prohibited from entering the grassland, so visitors should enjoy views along the Onko Sea Road. Read More

There are some means of transportation for the island tourism, for example, a sightseeing hire or a rental bicycle. I rend the bicycle, and it took about 2 hours to go around the Yagishiri Island by the rental bicycle. Walkers can go around for about 4 hours on foot. Be careful not to be late for the ferry.

Look of Takanosu-enchi Observation Deck

The observation deck surrounded by wooden fences is built on the small hill. A view is very good because of the highest place in the island. The superb view can be savored if it is the fine weather. Benches are set to take a rest at the site, too.
