[Tamashimayama Observation Deck in Okushiri Island] Most Popular Tourist Attraction in Okushiri

October 4th, 2016

Tamashimayama Observation Deck

Tamashimayama Observation Deck (球島山展望台) is a lookout on the top of Mt. Tamashima (球島山), the 3rd highest mountain in Okushiri Island, in the northern part of the Okushiri Island. The elevation of the mountain is 396 m. Visitors can enjoy a 360 degree view because there is nothing to interrupt the view, so it is the most popular famous tourist attraction in the Okushiri Island. Starry sky can be enjoyed in the evening, and I guess that the sunset also looks beautiful. The lookout and a parking lot are built at the site. Admission free. The parking lot is free of charge.

Look of Tamashimayama Observation Deck

I could not help making a sound for seeing nice views after I had finished going up 90 steps. The panoramic view such as Mt. Kamui (神威山), Hokkaido Mainland, Sea of Japan and Nabetsuru-iwa Rock (鍋釣岩) can be savored. A scenery with the steps is worth seeing, too. By the way, I visited here in an autumn, and various wild flowers were planted along the steps. I had never seen rosa rugosa, Japanese pampas grass and hydrangea at same time. It is interesting!
