Sagiri Observatory

ContactYufu City Commerce, Industry & Tourism Division


Found on the way to Beppu City from Yufu City, Sagiri Observatory provides a spectacular view of downtown Yufuin from its platform 680 m above sea level.
Mt. Yufu surrounds the premises with a great variety of scenery throughout all four seasons: a great contrast of the sky and the mountain in spring, a golden scenery of waving Japanese pampas in autumn, a snowy landscape in the winter, and more. Winter, in particular, brings a mystic view of the early morning mist, also known as "sagiri" or "fog-like mist."
