From an altitude of 1163.7 meters (about 3818 ft), the Koyodai Observation Deck allows you to take in the gorgeous 360 degree panoramic view of Lake Motosu, Saiko Lake, Mt. Misaka, Mt. Ashiwada and Mt. Fuji. Just like its name implies, Koyodai (literally, autumn foliage observation deck) is famous during the fall when you can take in all the brilliant colors.
