Yokote Park Observation Deck

Observatory / Outlook
An observation deck located in Yokote Park in Shiroyama-machi, Yokote City. The observation deck is built to resemble a castle keep on the grounds of a former outer citadel (and is commonly called Yokote Castle). From the observation deck you can look out over the surrounding scenery including the Yokote Basin, Mt. Chokai, and the Yokote River. While the observation deck is closed from December to March it is briefly reopened in February during the Yokote Snow Festival.
