One of Hokkaido’s leading photography spots – Shikotsu Toya National Park Silo Observatory is an observation deck on the west bank of Lake Toya. It is a great place to have a superb, large panoramic view of Lake Toya as well as Nakajima Island, Mt. Usu, Mt. Showa Shinzan, Toyako town, and Nishiyama Crater.
The silo observatory is full of souvenir of Hokkaido. The Hokkaido souvenir shop is on the first floor. The famous confectionary of Toyako is Wakasaimo. Bokka’s dairy products are also available. The yoghurt is very tasty and rich. Shiroikoibito, Royce, seaweed, Ramen, and woodcraft are also sold there.
The second floor viewing restaurant is large with 216 seats and has many customers from group tours. You can eat Hokkaido’s specialty cuisine. There are Ishikarinabe, Teppanyaki and Hokkaido style BBQ.
