On the seventh floor, 18 meters up, the observation room offers a view of Sakata Port, along with the Sea of Japan, Takasago Wharf, cruise ships, and Japan Naval SDF ships.

Review of Kitakori Green Land Observatory

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/12/19 高い所からの眺め
駐車場も広く、入場料 無料、エレベーターですぐに上がれます。眺めだけ見るなら最高です。 一階には展示物もありますが 長時間いるのは難しいかと思います。
Reviewed:2018/04/29 遠くからも目立つ。
目立っている展望台だったので立ち寄りました。外観も変わっていますが、中も変わっていて興味が惹かれます。
Reviewed:2017/04/18 ハッキリ言って、酷い施設になってしまいましたね。
展示室は節電ということで、通常は灯りがついていない。来訪者が訪れて慌てて電気を付けていた。管理者は男性の方一人だけだが、事務所のドアが開けっぱなしなので管理者が席を外すと中丸見えで防犯意識が皆無。閉館時間も日没までだが、曇りの日は管理者の匙加減で閉館時間が決まってしまい、1時間前に閉館もざらです(みんながみんな夕日を見に来るだけではないのでは?)。早期閉館告知も駐車場にある看板のみ、山形県が保有す...

          Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
