At a mere height of 207 m, it’s no surprise that Mt. Tento's name is derived from the Japanese meaning “as comfortable as heaven.” In 1938 it was nationally recognized as a “place of scenic beauty.” The observatory at the summit has great panoramic views of Lake Abashiri, Lake Notoro, the Sea of Okhotsk, the Shiretoko Mountain Range and the mountains of Akan. Enjoy dynamic 360-degree landscapes in each season.
