Highlights of Hamanaka - 2. Biwase Scenic Viewpoint

展望台
A 360-degree panoramic view as seen from the scenic viewpoint


Sitting on high ground to the south of Kiritappu Wetland, this outlook provides a 360-degree panoramic view. Visitors will see the Biwase River meandering through the vast Kiritappu Wetland before them, and find the rough waves of the Pacific Ocean when they turn around. This natural splendor has been acclaimed as a world-class tourist destination.
 The outlook also affords a view of an oddly shaped rock off the shore – Madoiwa Rock (meaning “window rock”). It originally had two “windows,” giving it the appearance of a pair of glasses, but one of them collapsed due to major earthquakes in 1993 and 1994.
