3 Major Tourist Attractions That Globe Looks Round in Hokkaido
3 major tourist attractions that the globe looks round are in vast Hokkaido. Those are Soyamisaki Park in Wakkanai (稚内の宗谷岬公園), Cape Chikyu in Muroran (室蘭の地球岬) and Kaiyodai Hill in Nakashibetsu (中標津の開陽台展望台). The globe is hard to look round by phots and movies, but the horizon and the sea horizon look round if you see the views at locally. Please visit those on a sunny day. I think you will be really impressed.
In addition, each places are far away, and it might be a good idea to go on a "3 Major Tourist Attractions That Earth Looks Round" tour. You should compare which tourist attractions look most round. The Soya-misaki Park is about 500 km away from the Cape Chikyu, and the Kaiyodai Hill is about 400 km away from the Soya-misaki Park, and the Cape Chikyu is about 450 km away from the Kaiyodai Hill. Because there are a lot of tourist attractions along roads between each places, you can go around about for 1 week while enjoying onsen or tasty foods.
Cape Soya (宗谷岬) is a cape, the Japan mainland's northernmost point, located in the northeastern part of Wakkanai city, the Japan's northernmost city, and a lot of visitors come. In addition, the cape is one of 3 major tourist attractions that the globe looks round in Hokkaido together with Cape Chikyu (地球岬) and Kaiyoudai (開陽台). The Cape Soya is roughly divided into 2 places, one is the Cape Soya that the Japan mainland's northernmost point is overcome by deep emotion on the flat, and another is Soyamisaki Park (宗谷岬公園) that Sakhalin Island (サハリン島), the Sea of Okhotsk and the Sea of Japan can be looked over on the hillside. Soya Channel (宗谷海峡) separates the Cape Soya from the Sakhalin Island, and the distance is around 40 km. The Cape Soya is connected Cape Nishi-notoromisaki (西能登呂岬) in the Sakhalin Island with a line, and the left side is the Sea of Japan, and the right side is the Sea of Okhotsk.

Kaiyodai Hill (開陽台) is a hill in Nakashibetsu town is located in the northwestern direction of Nemuro city. A round observation deck is built on the hilltop at about 270 m above sea level, and is famous for looking over 330 degrees view along the horizon. I wondered why it was not 360 degree. On investigation, the horizon looks round in 330 degree. The other 30 degree may be the back side. Kaiyodai Ranch (開陽台牧場) with area of about 780 ha is built on the hill, too, and 1000 milk cows are put out to pasture. A walk with the total length of 2.6 km and Kaiyodai Ranch Fureai Park (開陽台牧場ふれあい広場) are built along the ranch, and a walking is available. Bell of Happiness (幸せの鐘) and Figures of Dairy Cow (乳牛の像) are built, too. By the way, the straight road "North 19 Line" in front of the Kaiyodai Hill is called Milk Road (ミルクロード) because most tank trucks for milk run on the road, and it is popular with motor tour riders.
