We stopped along the highway to enjoy the views from this lookout at Ogigahara and they were beautiful. The winter setting, the mountains, the plains and the ocean in the distance were fantastic. Well worth stopping if you are travelling this way.

We heard the observatory offers great view over the Tokachi plains and even Pacific Ocean. But the day was cloudy and didn't allow us to see them all. Still, it was a good resting stop on the way to Shikaribetsu Lake. Kids had fun catching many grasshoppers and cute little beetles. There is a clean restroom as well.

We were driving up to Lake Shikaribetsu from Shikaoi town when we noticed this observatory, and we told ourselves we should stop for picture taking on our way down the following day. And, we were glad we did. One could catch a view of the beautiful plains of Shikaoi area standing from here. Highly recommended.
