Look of Furetoi Observation Deck
A shell midden in ancient times used to be around here, and artifacts from the shell midden used to be displayed at an underground exhibition room. But it is closed at present. In a winter, it is famous as a viewpoint to see drift ice, and it is famous as a haunted place in a summer. I do not know if suicides by hanging oneself and a burning oneself to death is true or not. Therefore, I decided not to enter the building.
