Place That Mr. Takeshiro Matsuura Get Hint -Place That Hokkaido Was Named in Otoineppu-

December 3rd, 2016

The place that Hokkaido was named (北海道命名の地) is located in Otoineppu village between Wakkanai city and Nayoro city. Mr. Takeshiro Matsuura (松浦武四郎) was taught the meaning of "Kiner (カイナー)" by an elder of Ainu people around this place in the Edo period, and this place is known for having his opportunity to think the name about Hokkaido. There is nothing except a monument along Teshio River (天塩川). But some anglers came, and I think that this place is famous fishing spot. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge.
