[Annai Tenbo Park in Kamoenai] Curved Raiden National Route to Sai-no-Kawara Tunnel Goes Well with Blue Sea

Annai Tenbo Park

Annai Tenbo Park (あんない展望公園) is a park along Raiden National Route (雷電国道 * National Route 229) in Kamoenai (神恵内) village, the west side of Shakotan Peninsula, and is relatively near Cape Kamui (積丹半島). Anai Elementary School (安内小学校) was closed in 1967, and the Annai Tenbo Park was built. I guess an large parking lot is the site of the elementary school. The parking lot and an observation deck are built on the site. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge. Restraunts, cafes, souvenir shops and convenience stores are not built around here.

Cape Kamui

Cape Kamui (神威岬) is a cape with steep cliff jutting out into the Sea of Japan from Shakotan Peninsula (積丹半島) in Niseko-Shakotan-Otaru Kaigan Quasi-national Park, and is one of 3 major tourist attractions together with Cape Ogorn (黄金岬) and Shimamui Coast (島武意海岸) in the Shakotan Peninsula. The kamui means a god in Ainu language. The distance is around 1.5 km away from a traffic gate along National Route to the end of a road, and there are a public parking lot, a public restroom and a rest house named Kamui-Banya (カムイ番屋). A restraunt and a souvenir shop are at the building, and seafood rice bowls or a soft serve ice cream can be eaten. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge. Read More

The Cape Shakotan is famous for Sea Urchin Rice Bowl (ウニ丼), and is well-known for tasty sea food, too. Misaki (みさき), Nakamuraya (中村屋), Uminoya (海のや), Iida (いい田), Shokudo Ushio (食堂うしお), Rinko (鱗晃) and Rinko-so (鱗晃荘) are popular in particular. I ate the sea urchin rice bowl at the Misaki, and it was taty.

Sea Urchin Rice Bowl

Misaki (みさき) is a restaurant in Shakotan and was founded in 1973. An owner is a fisherman, and is famous for eating a seafood dish. It opens only during summer season (from late April to October). Because a fresh sea urchin can be eaten from mid June when the sea urchin fishing is released, visitors seem to increase. Because it started a bussiness at 09:00, 6 groups of visitors have already lined up when I arrived around 08:40. It is really popular. Read More

    Shakotan Peninsula

    Shakotan Peninsula (積丹半島) is a peninsula located in the northwestern direction of Otaru city, and has been designated as Niseko-Shakotan-Otaru Kaigan Quasi-National Park (ニセコ積丹小樽海岸国定公園) because of a precious complicated coastline with steep cliffs. The sea of the Shakotan is very beautiful, and looks clear blue, so everybody call Shakotan Blue (シャコタンブルー). A traffic used to be inconvenient in the old days, and tourists rarely visited here. People are easy to access the Shakotan Peninsula as well as Shiretoko Peninsula (知床半島) at present, but it is called an unexplored region because it would not develop very much. Read More

    Park

    There are some memorial monuments such as a white monument, Site of Anai Elementary School (安内小学校址), that is the motif of a family and the observation deck on a small hill with about 10 m in height. Madoiwa Rocks (窓岩), Sai-no-Kawara Tunnel (西の河原トンネル), Cape Jyubo (ジュウボウ岬) and blue sea can be seen on the observation deck. The curved Raiden National Route to the Sai-no-Kawara Tunnel goes well with the blue sea, and it is photogenic. A table and benches are provided on the observation deck, and visitors can take a rest. This park is bright and comfortable in the daytime, but it looks scary in the evening because of nothing.
