Owner description: It's on Highway 243 between Bihoro and Teshikaga. I visited the place by taking Twinkle Bus tour (organised by JR Hokkaido).

Driving to Teshikaga from Abashiri, choose the Bihoro pass route. The pass is beautiful in the winter as you approach the lookout, and the knarled trees in the snowy caldera top are sightly. At the summit you will find the Bihoro Toge (Pass) Lookout, where you can see Lake Kussharo in all its glory. Glad we chose this route. Visited on 2/21/2018

If you travel to Hokkaido, this is one location not to be missed. The view at the lookout is absolutely stunning especially in a clear blue sky.

If you have a car, then you have to go here. Fantastic view across Lake Kussharo. The car park is already very high, but you can walk up a lot higher. Well worth a detour.

3rd time here. Panoramic view of Kussharo-ko. Was a bit hazy so up to the Wakoto peninsula can be seen in the distance though less windy compared to our previous visits in Oct.

Bihorotoge Lookout is a Roadstation one will pass by when driving from Lake Kussharo to Bihoro town along Highway 243. There is a roadstation stop here. One must make a point to climb up a little slope across the roadstation to catch a most picturesque view of Lake Kussharo and the surrounding. We passed by in the late afternoon and caught a beautiful sunset. Highly recommended.
