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.

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.
