Hakucho-Ohashi Observation Deck (白鳥大橋展望台) is a lookout under Hakucho-Ohashi Bridge, a symbol of Muroran city, in the western part of the Muroran city, and is one of best night view spots in the Muroran. It is the nearest the Hakucho-Ohashi Bridge in the night view spots of Muroran, and Muroran Port can be viewed in the daytime, too. A lot of visitors come to see the night view, But, please be careful because I was hard to find this place when I went for the first time in the evening. There is a parking lot under the bridge. Admission free. The parking lot is free of charge. A restroom is near the parking lot.

The visitors can view whole Muroran Port, and can get a close look at the Hakucho-Ohashi Bridge and a loop road. the bridge that I looked at from here was very amazing.
