【Miyagi】Komakusadaira Observatory (駒草平展望台)

Komasodaira Observatory


Komasodaira Observatory is an observation deck in the middle of the Zao Echo Line, and you can overlook the Unying Waterfall and Uwa Mountains.

Of course, the observation deck has a fence and it is safe, but the bottom is a cliff, and you can feel the superb view, power, and a little thrill.

Autumn leaves seem to be beautiful in autumn.

Around here.

It is on the way to miyagi prefecture side of Zao Echo Line.

Since both sides of the Echo Line are large parking lots, it is easy to stop on the way to Orama and on the way back.

For a break in the middle of the drive

It is also ideal for a break during the drive. From
the parking lot, walk along the flat promenade for about 3 minutes to reach the observation deck.

There is also a souvenir shop in the parking lot near the observation deck, so I think it is also good to stop by here.

There is a beautiful toilet in the parking lot across the road from the observation deck.

What is the view from the observation deck?
