Nice Views from Kiritappumisaki Observatory and Yufutsumisaki Lighthouse -Cape Kiritappu in Hamanaka-

April 5th, 2016

Cape Kiritappu

Cape Kiritappu (霧多布岬) is in Hamanaka town located between Kushiro city and Nemuro city. Formal name of Cape Kiritappu is Cape Yufutsu (湯沸岬). Another name is Cape Tokkari (トッカリ岬) because Tokkari that means an earless seal in Ainu language are seen around the cape sometimes. There is the Cape Kiritappu in the west side of the Kiritappu Peninsula (霧多布半島), steep cliffs with 40 m in height extend. A strong wind and angry waves from the Pacific ocean create this strange topography. There are Kiritappumisaki Observatory (霧多布岬展望台) and Yufutsumisaki Lighthouse (湯沸岬灯台). Visitors can look at Hokakeiwa Rock (帆掛岩) that the earless seals take a rest and look over Ponporoto district (奔幌戸地区) and Mouraito-no-Zepeki (貰人の絶壁 * Mouraito Cliff) through the Gulf of Hamanaka (浜中湾).
