Cape Chikyu, Muroran

3.9
Observe the earth from a spot where it actually looks round at Cape Chikyu and ring a bell for happiness. Voted the most beautiful scene in Japan, this favorite tourist spot attracts both locals and foreigners year-round, displaying nature at its best. A white octagonal-shape lighthouse and an observatory built at 147 m (482 ft) above the sea level gives the opportunity to take photos overlooking the bay. Listen to sheer force of waves endlessly smashing against rocks and watch the panorama overlooking the bay. You can also watch for dolphins and whales across the Uchiura Bay.

  • In the summer of 2013, don't take a one-hour bus from Camden to come here. Overlooking the distance of the sea can see the Earth's arc, probably the name from this. Love this place too much. Certainly is selected Hokkaido Natural 100 place. JR maternal love stand down nearly three kilometers, or uphill, suggest a taxi

  • Get off at the station of mother love, bus to Earth Cape, then walked through the snow-covered road. Had been uphill from the bus stop, arriving in about 20 minutes. Take a picture and get back. Go MURORAN City Hall housing estate return, MURORAN special Curry noodle eating, returned from MURORAN station. Mother love station waiting for a taxi, or get lost, but bus came immediately jumped. By taxi about 3 kg so clean it?, I have no idea.

  • Only when the weather is clear... Don’t go there in a foggy day for you’ll see below nothing but fog/clouds. But please go there in bright weather, and you’ll be amazed by the huge dimensions, great panorama. Up there are a few small businesses, like quick bite restaurants, shops.
  • It was foggy when we went up and couldn't see anything but nice experience. The roads are quite narrow on the way up and down, drive slow and carefully...
  • In a city with not much to do this is a beautiful highlight and photo spot! Near it at the mountain there are also several small mom and pop food shops that serve amazing streetfood and noodles including the specialty Curry Ramen.
  • There is a lighthouse, great seaview and muroran city view.Easily accessible by car. Free car park and wifi
  • Not for sightseeing on a snowing, wintery day...
