[Cape Ogon in Rumoi] Famous Place to See Beautiful Setting Sun and Catch Beach Crab

Cape Ogon

Cape Ogon (黄金岬) is a lower cape together with Cape Soya and Cape Noshappu in Ogonmisaki Kaihin Park (黄金岬海浜公園) located in the northwestern part of Rumoi city. Because herrings used to gather to spawn, and those lit up by the setting sun looked brilliant in the old days, the cape was named the Cape Ogon. As origin of its name suggests, the Cape Ogon still has been famous as a good place to see the beautiful setting sun, and the setting sun in the Rumoi has been chosen as "100 Best Setting Sun in Japan (日本の夕陽百選)". It is sometimes said that the setting sun from here is the most beautiful in Japan. There are Rumoi Ogonmisaki Campsite (留萌黄金岬キャンプ場), a public restroom and restraunts near the cape, and Rumoi Umi-no-Furusatokan Hall (留萌市海のふるさと館) is built on a hill, too. The Sea of Japan can be viewed there. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge.
