Mt.Shin Arashi Sky Park Observation Deck (Shin Arashi-yama Sky Park Tenboudai)
The observation deck where one may encounter Ezo red squirrels offers a view of the patchwork-like Tokachi plain.
The deck is situated 12 km south of Memuro Town, 15 minutes by a car from the town, and is 320 meters above sea level.From spring to fall, Tokachi’s panoramic and pastoral landscape forms a beautifully colored patchwork, and from the deck one can overlook Mt. Meakan-dake in the east, the Daisetsu and Tokachi mountain ranges in the north and the Hidaka mountain range in the west. At night, one can enjoy the night view of the city lights around Obihiro and the sky full of stars from the deck. In winter, the deck attracts many people who love skiing and winter sports as a ski area.
