At Famous Place for Setting Sun, Rumoi Can Be Looked over -Senbodai Observatory in Rumoi-

April 9th, 2016

Senbodai Observatory (千望台) is on a hill that visitors can look over whole Rumoi city at an altitude of 180 m. 3 communications towers block my views, but the visitors can get a clear view, such as Teuri Island (天売島), Yagishiri Island (焼尻島) and Mt. Rihirifuji (利尻富士) if it is fine. It is a famous place for seeing the setting sun and was chosen as "100 Best Setting Sun in Japan (日本の夕陽百選)" once. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge.

There is Rurumoppe-Ikoi-no-Mori Forest (るるもっぺ憩いの森) around here, so Rumoi people sometimes go on a hikego hiking and relax. There are a cafe to get some rest and a statue of Okutaro Igarashi (五十嵐億太郎) who is called a father of the Rumoi port at the site.
