Paranomic Views of Nakashibetsu

Observe the Roundness of the Earth

 By Amanda Ho   Oct 17, 2016

Nakashibetsu Town in northwest Nemuro City is known as a dairy town. 15 kilometers from the center of the town lies Kaiyodai Observatory. At the top of the observatory is a two-story round building. On the second floor is the observation deck, where you can see the vast meadows where cows graze, the Shiretoko mountain range, and even the Notsuke Peninsula on a clear day.

The first floor has a souvenir shop and a cafe. The tables face the outside and you can enjoy views of the area while having your meal. There is also an information area detailing the history of the town.
