Good Views, No Matter Whether Hair Is Increasing or Decreasing -Kenashiyama View Point in Otaru-

April 23rd, 2017

Kenashiyama View Point (毛無山展望台) is a parking lot on the mountainside of Mt. Kenashiyama (毛無山) at 470 m above sea level along Japanese National Route 393 and is far from Otaru downtown. There is no facility except the parking lot. Kenashi (ケナシ) means "Place That Trees Grow Thick (木々の生えるところ)" in Ainu language. But Kenashi (毛無) means "Baldness" in Japanese. In any case, maybe this place is related to hair. In addition, Mountains in Mashike (増毛) can be seen, if it is fine. Mashike (増毛) means "Increasing The Hair" in Japanese. I am curious about which the hair is increasing or decreasing. Put it aside, a view of Otaru and a night view of Otaru are very good, and views of the mountains are very good, too. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge.
