Chikyu Misaki, translated as Cape Earth, is a popular spot for locals to come and view the first dawn of every new year. And once you are here, it’s easy to see why. Rising more than 100 meters above the Pacific Ocean, this cliffside location offers an unparalleled majestic view of the ocean from sunrise to sunset.
With such breathtaking beauty, you might be wondering why you don’t hear of Cape Earth more often as a Hokkaido scenic spot. Located in the Hokkaido city of Muroran, which is better known for it’s history as an industrial town, this area is overlooked by most visitors; which is a shame since this breathtaking scenic spot could easily be incorporated into a visit to the nearby famous attractions as Lake Toya (洞爺湖) and Noboribetsu (登別).
As you can see from these photo, even a town not well known among tourists to Hokkaido holds scenic treasures that one would remember for a lifetime.
Let us help you discover the natural beauty and the hidden treasures of Hokkaido.
