Nayoro Observatory Kitasubaru

Nayoro City has one of the most beautiful starlit skies in Japan, and despite its proximity to the city center, Kitasubaru has little light pollution.
This means that on a clear night you can see a night sky full of stars.
The Pilika Telescope, the second largest telescope in Japan, is installed at the observatory, allowing visitors to observe the stars.
The observatory also has a planetarium that shows projections four times a day, even on cloudy days.
