From Mt. Katamae Forest Park to the Statue of Tatsuko?
It is a immediate walk from the parking lot to the observation deck.
It takes about 2 minutes on foot, and the observation deck offers a superb view of Lake Tazawa.
At the end of Lake Tazawa, you can see the mountains colored with autumn leaves.

Parking lot of Mt. Katamae Forest Park (Tazawako Observatory)
There is also a driveway in the large park, so you can drive to the area where the Tazawako Observatory is located.
Parking is free, but the closest parking lot from the observation deck is not very large.
If it is full, there is a parking lot (see the photo at the beginning of this article) near the Yamanyuki Museum, so I think that it will be in the form of using it.
