Hakka Pass Viewing Platform (発荷峠展望台)

4.0

Observatory / Outlook

A viewing platform located along the Hakka Pass 631 meters above sea level. One of the best viewing platforms in the Lake Towada area, visitors can enjoy picturesque scenery, including of course the magnificent lake as well as Mt. Ohanabe in the Towada caldera and the Hakko Mountain Range. The site also has toilets and a souvenir shop, making it the perfect place to stop for a rest in the middle of a drive.

Review of Hakka Pass Observatory

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/05/09 Attractive views
Worth visiting though in Western parlance it would be more helpful to refer to it as an Observation Point
Reviewed:2019/03/07 Came to see Lake Towada from the observatory
Came by van in a group of 7 persons. The observatory has a observation deck that gives a higher and better view of the lake.
Reviewed:2017/10/31 Beautiful view
We made a brief stopover at Hakka Pass Observatory to take a look at the autumn foliage. Go to the second floor of the Observatory to have a good view of the lake and the mountains.

          Famed for its sake and samurai, Akita prefecture offers quintessential Japanese culture in a non-touristy setting. Alongside the celebrated rice paddies and historical sites of the region lies dramatic natural scenery in the form of the rugged coastline of the Oga Peninsula and the Dakigaeri Gorge, best visited in autumn, when the leaves begin to change color.
