Cape Ogon (黄金岬)

Cape Ogon protrudes out into the sea just beyond Bikuni Harbor. There is an approximately 410-meter footpath, with three entrances giving access to the observation platform. In the past, a lookout tower was located on the Cape to watch for shoals of Pacific herring out at sea, and the name “Cape Ogon” (“Golden Cape”) was given to the Cape because the shoals of herring flashed gold in the setting sun. The way in which both the sky and the sea become tinged with crimson as the sun goes down is very beautiful, and Cape Ogon has been said to have the best sunsets in Japan.

          Hokkaido Areas


          Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
