The Silo Observation Deck rises high above the western shore of Lake Toya, providing a breath-taking view of the lake and its surroundings. From this observatory, visitors can gaze out over a broad panorama that encompasses the entire lake. Nakajima Island, the Mt. Usu volcano, and Mt. Showashinzan are just a few of the notable natural wonders scattered throughout the park. Regardless of the season, the natural beauty of the park attracts a constant stream of visitors year-round. For visitors who love the briskness of fall, autumn in Toya National Park is particularly beautiful as the entire area surrounding the lake transforms into a carpet of red. Visitors should make sure to try the wakasaimo, a confectionary made from sweet potato when they visit the Silo Observation Deck’s souvenir shop.
