[Reuke Ranch in Rumoi] Good Place to See Beautiful Setting Sun, Canola Flower and Sea of Japan
Reuke Ranch (礼受牧場) is a municipal ranch on a hill along the Sea of Japan in the southern part of Rumoi city. The Rumoi or the sea of the Japan can be viwed, and it is well-known for enjoying a good view. The ranch is stopping a business, but only Reuke Ranch Stockbreeding Hall Trim (礼受牧場畜産館トリム) opens a business in the site. There are a restraunt and resting place at the building, and an soft serve ice cream and Ororon Ramen (オロロンラーメン) are popular. The 50-70 m elevation hill is called "A hill that wind can be seen (風のみえる丘)", and a wind farm is formed. 10 aerogenerators conspicuous are at a great distance. Beautiful canola flower is in full bloom from late May to mid June. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge. The Reuke Ranch Stockbreeding Hall Trim is closed from mid October to late April.
By the way, a highway bus "Rumoi-go (るもい号)" and an express bus "Haboro-go (はぼろ号)" run between the Rumoi and the Sapporo.
Rumoi (留萌) that about 20,000 people live is the 32th largest port city in Hokkaido, and is one of regional hub cities of the Northern Hokkaido area. It is located in the northwestern direction of Asahikawa city, and seafood processing is flourished. Market share of Herring Roe (カズノコ) grows to 50% of the total domestic production. In the old days, a lot of the herrings used to be caught around here. But a herring fishing industry is unfortunately not flourishing at present. As for a climate, the wind is relatively light in a summer, but it is so windy in a winter, and it snows relatively hard. Shore of Rumoi breaked by heavy surging waves is one of 3 Major Surges in The World along with Madras in India and Wick in Scotland, and 7.6 m height and 106 m length surges that was not tsunami was observed, and the highest record is 12.07m. Especially, the sea rages in the winter. Read More
Views from Reuke Ranch
A beach along the Sea of the Japan can be viwed from the hill at about 50 m above sea level, and Golden Beach Rumoi (ゴールデンビーチるもい) comes into sight, and the blue sea is comfortable. Beautiful sunset seems to be seen. The aerogenerators are built at the mountain side, but seeing those nearby is not good, so I think that seeing those from a distance is very good.
