Viewing Spot That Mt. Rishirifuji Looks Very Beautiful -Otatomari Pond and Around There in Rishiri Island-

October 10th, 2015

Around Otatomari Pond

Otatomari Pond (オタトマリ沼) is located in the southern part of Rishiri Island (利尻島). There are Numaura Wetland (沼浦湿原), Numaura Beach (沼浦海岸), Numaura Obserabatory (沼浦展望台) called another name Shiroi Koibito Hill (白い恋人の丘), Numaura Camping Ground (沼浦キャンプ場) in the area, too. It is hard to find the Numaura Beach in that. Because other places are easy to be found, tourists are easy to arrive. There are not particularly facilities at the Numaura Beach, too. But a beautiful sandy beach spreads over. Rishiri Island people will enjoy a north short summer at this sandy beach. But, although they swim in the summer, it looks cold.

Numaura Obserabatory (Shiroi Koibito Hill)

Numaura Obserabatory is a viewing point that tourists can see Mt. Rishirifuji and Otatomari Pond at the same time and is called Shiroi Koibito Hill, too. This is because Mt. Rishirifuji photographed here is used for the package of Shiroi Koibito (a famous cookie of Hokkaido). A scenery that the tourists look over the Numaura Beach here is beautiful. By the way, there is no facility except a parking lot.
