Cliffs, Colors of Grass and Color of Sea Are Great! -Tokkarisho Lookout in Muroran-
May 15th, 2017
Tokkarisho Lookout (トッカリショ展望台) is a beauty spot on the outer beach of Etomo Peninsula (絵鞆半島) in the south part of Muroran city. Originally Ainu people called Txukarisho (トゥカリショ) and it means Earless Seal Rocks (アザラシ岩). Many earless seals lived around here at that day. The Tokkarisho seems to be a corrupted form of the Txukarisho. The Tokkarisho Lookout is located between Cape Chikyu (地球岬) and Itanki Beach (イタンキ浜), and cliffs, colors of grass and color of sea are great! I have never seen such a senery in Hokkaido. Visitors can walk a little to the Tokkarisho Beach (トッカリショ浜). In addition, Swimming can be enjoyed in a summer. Except a parking lot, there is no facility. Admmission free. A parking lot is free of charge.
