  • Attractive views

    Worth visiting though in Western parlance it would be more helpful to refer to it as an Observation Point
  • 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.
  • 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.
