  • MURORAN-Shi is the best tourist spots. Great lighthouse and the sea. ... There is no other parking place free of charge. Of public authority's bus from mother love Jr. Hill walk about 15 minutes from the bus stop at the end. I'd always be sent if sent in MURORAN.

  • Mother love than can be reached in about 5 minutes. So FR cars go? Is worried about slipping road birding is and the location without problems. And so if I come, and there were about 10 people. And homemade Cape winter, Mt. komagatake of Hakodate from the round horizon clearly. Also, the sea in the marine was very beautiful.

  • Came. During the rain, so is only 2 built-in rustic tourist destination tourists. Even without such special inspiring views on Middle Harbour Bridge was impressive.

  • 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.
  • 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...
  • It is a famous sightseeing spot in Muroran. "Chikuu" is named for the Ainu language meaning the cliff.
