Famous Place for Setting Sun on Rocky Shore -Cape Ogon in Rumoi-
April 9th, 2016
Cape Ogon (黄金岬) is on the shore in Rumoi city. Because herrings that were lit up by the setting sun were brilliant in the old days, it was named the Cape Ogon. As its name suggests, the Cape Ogon still has been famous for seeing the beautiful setting sun. It was chosen as "100 Best Setting Sun in Japan (日本の夕陽百選)" once. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge.
When I read Tweets, Cape Ogon seems to be popular.
昨日までの留萌、黄金岬と海のふるさと館に行きました。カニが見つからなくて残念(´・c_・`)海のふるさと館はちーーっこいけど思いの外面白かった！トドの剥製だよ～チョウザメやアザラシ、オットセイの剥製もあったよ～ pic.twitter.com/1BNe4giJeR— ざわ (@zawazawa1827) 2016年8月14日

Rocks have characteristic, too, and columnar jointing such as Kurumaishi (車石) in Nemuro appears on the surface of the sea. When I visited here, a lot of tourists caught beach crabs in the tide pool. Ogonmisaki Kaihin Park (黄金岬海浜公園) was built around here, and there is Rumoi Ogonmisaki Campsite (留萌黄金岬キャンプ場) near the sea and is Rumoi Umi-no-Furusatokan Hall (留萌市海のふるさと館) on a hill, too. Visitors can look over the Sea of Japan.
