Yatsugatake South Base Observatory (八ヶ岳南麓天文台 Yatsugatake Nanroku Tenmondai?) is an observatory in Hokuto, Yamanashi, Japan. Its observatory code is 896.

It is frequently used due to its proximity to the Greater Tokyo Area, which has resulted in many asteroid discoveries. Yoshio Kushida has worked on observational research on pre-earthquake natural phenomena.
