Star and Sunrise Watching

Milky Way and POLARIS

The sky in Hokkaido is clean and dark. It is very good for star watching.
We can use binoculars and the telescope for observation.
We will make some description for the stars.

A fine weather possibility is high in autumn, winter and spring.
We can watch the beautiful Milky Way if it is fine weather and no moon in the sky.

If you have a camera, please try to take photo of stars.

We have tripod for lending.

Beautiful starlit sky
Beautiful sunrise

Sunrise in summer is too early to see.
Other season, we can see the beautiful sunrise from window of guest rooms.

Please become early bird to see the sunrise.

Star watch calendar

About 10 days before the new moon, about five days after the new moon, we can see stars without disturbing by the moon in this period.
The name of the constellation is the meteor shower peak day. One day before and after the day, shooting stars may be easier to see.
You can send monthly by clicking "Next".
Even in another days we can enjoy planets or moon or some stars if it is fine sky.
