Hokodate View Terrace鉾立展望台

Observatory / Outlook

Hokodate View Terrace is at the fifth station on Mt. Chokai. The highest point on the Chokai Blue Line, it also serves as the trailhead for the Mt. Chokai Kisakata-guchi climbing trail. You can see the Sea of Japan from the observation platform, and on the opposite side facing the mountains, you can look down over the V-shaped Naso Valley. The seasonal attractions such as green spring leaves and colored fall leaves make it a big tourist draw. Near the parking area there is a facility, named Inakura-sansho, where you can stop for meals or rest, as well as public toilets. The visitor center has exhibits introducing Mt. Chokai.

          Akita Main Areas


          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.
