Yokoyama Observatory (横山展望台)


Observatory / Outlook

This 203-meter high observatory is located in the southern part of the Shima Peninsula. It is situated on the ria coastline of Ago Bay. There are about 60 small islands in the bay, and the observatory gives you a commanding view of their beauty. It offers three decks that give you a view in all directions of the Shima area. Halfway up Yokoyama to the observatory is the Sozo-no-Mori Yokoyama rest house. There is a promenade leading to the observatory that takes 30 minutes. The area is also famous as a cherry blossom viewing spot, with the “Yokoyama Sakura Festival” held in the early spring.

Theres many spots after the main view point, high recommended to go further. There is cute cafe selling soft serve and sandwiches on the main observation deck. They had amazing soft serve!

They’ve done a lot of work up the top close to the car park, with viewing platforms galore. Can get pretty busy, so either wait to be let to the top car park or have a decent walk from the lower one...
Reviewed:2018/10/20 Great view on the ocean
It was part of our trip in Ise area and this sightseeing point gives the overall view onto this peninsula. Rich of natural things like trees, herbs and livelihoods.

          Spread across the eastern side of the Kii Peninsula, Mie prefecture boasts hundreds of kilometers of pretty coastline comprising the oyster-rich Toba city and Shima National Park all the way down to Kumano, a city that marks the beginning of part of the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage, which runs into neighboring Wakayama prefecture. However, Mie is best known for the Ise Jingu Shinto shrine inland, one of the oldest and largest shrines in the country.
