Tahara-City Mt. Zao Observation Platform (Zaosan Tenbodai)
Mt. Zao Lookout
Atsumi Peninsula is full of great sights, but the Mt. Zao Observation Platform is holder of a special place among them. At 250m above sea level, it provides a 360-degree view of Tahara-City, Mikawa Bay and the Pacific Ocean. It features toilets, shop, restaurant, vending machines and other welcome amenities. Wind turbines placed atop the mountain produce some 300kW of clean, renewable energy and adds to the curiousness of the place. On the clearest days, even Mt. Fuji can be spotted from here. In the fall, thousands gather for the popular Mt. Zao Autumn Leaf Festival.
