Ashibetsu is officially recognized by the Ministry of the Environment as “The City of the Stars.”Approximately 89% of the city’s surface is covered by forest, and it is thanks to these trees that the city’s air is so clear, granting a beautiful view of the night sky. Be sure to visit the Ashibetsu Onsen Starlight Hotel, home to an outdoor stargazing space, with detailed descriptions to help you uncover the stunning panorama of stars above you. The cost to enter is 1,200¥, but this cost is waived if you stay the night at the hotel! (*)The star commentary is available in Japanese only.
