[Kenashiyama Viewpoint in Otaru] Good Lookout to View Downtown and Night View of Otaru

Kenashiyama Viewpoint

Kenashiyama Viewpoint (毛無山展望台) is a parking lot on the mountainside of Mt. Kenashiyama (毛無山) at 470 m above sea level along National Route 393 in the southern part of Otaru city, and is far from the downtown of the Ortaru. There is no facility except Kenashiyama Tenbodai Parking Lot (毛無山展望台駐車場). It is well-known as a good place to see the downtown and a night view of the Otaru. Kenashi (ケナシ) means "A place that trees grow thick" in Ainu language. But Kenashi (毛無) means "Baldness" in Japanese. In any case, maybe this place is related to hair. In addition, Mountains in Mashike (増毛) can be seen, if it is fine whether. Mashike (増毛) means "Increasing the hair" in the Japanese. I am curious about that the hair is increasing or decreasing. Admission free. The parking lot is free of charge. The parking lot is closed in a winter.
