Churaboshi Stargazing

Parks Overview Parks Overview

Admire the star-strewn night sky of Yambaru

Gaze into the heavens through a 350-millimeter telescope at Yambaru’s mountaintop astronomical observatory. The area is well beyond the reach of urban areas, meaning the clear night skies are free of light pollution. The observatory's rural, mountaintop location means visitors can see even the smallest, dimmest stars in the sky.
