Look of Kitaoimisaki Park

8 sculptures are built at the site, and the sculptures were named as Kitaoimisaki (北追岬), Kaitengahara (回天が原), Shimasakimori (島サキモリ), Kamuinagare (神威流), Hagurejima (はぐれ鳥), Yokukitasa (よくきたさ), Touminnotamenoshimahecho (島民のための島へっちょ) and Koinotsugime (恋のつぎめ). Those sculptures express wish of settlers from Kunashiri Island to the Okushiri. Although the name of the cape is the Cape Kuzure, it seems to be related to this place called "Cape Kitaoi (Kitaoimisaki)". This park has Footpath Course D "Art and Onsen with Relaxing (Dコース・芸術と温泉の癒しコース)", so visitors can enjoy a good combination with the blue sea, green small hills and the mysterious sculptures on foot. It is nice! There is a small cave named Zuboradou (ずぼら洞) on the way, too, and it is so exciting!
