  • This is a great observation deck that you can see up the ropeway. This is an observatory with a good view of Toya lake and Mt. Utsu Crater / Pacific Ocean. The ropeway price is never cheap, but it's definitely worth a visit.

  • An active volcano with an altitude of 737 m. It is located in Shikotsu Toya National Park, south of Lake Toya. Selected as "100 Geological Selections of Japan" with Showa Shinzan. The active volcano rank is A. It is said that Mt. Usu was born about 20,000 years ago. It becomes a cluster volcano and a lava dome group as a kind. Located about a 7-minute walk from Mt. Usu Ropeway Mountain Top Station, the Usuyama Crater Observatory offers a spectacular view of the "Ininuma Large Crater" and the Eruption Bay, which was created by the 1977 summit eruption. You can also go around The Outer Ring Trail on the Usu-san Outer Ring Promenade, but coco is difficult if you don't have easy to walk shoes.
