Whenever you visit Muroran, Hokkaido, please take the trouble to visit Cape Chikyu. When you reached the Cape, you could see the blue sea "join up" with the sky as one and it brings peace & calmness to you. Believe me, you will love it...More

Took the bus to the Cape after reading the reviews. Was worth every second, the walk was an easy stroll, noticed a couple of people doing it with "walkers." The view is excellent and you even get to ring the bell. There is a small...More

A small lighthouse sitting lonely just above the ocean. This spot offers such a great view of the water, mountains, the Muroran city, a perfect spot for a photo op. The viewing platform is a short uphill walk from the car park.

If you like to take photos, it's the place for you!! You might need a car to go there like I did. The road to up there is narrow sometimes but the view is excellent!!

The city provided a hop-on-hop-off bus for our cruise ship visit. This was one of the stops - worth hopping off here, walking up the stairs for a lovely view of surrounding cliffs, ocean and lighthouse.

I visited during sunset. Very romantic and man people. Twilight time is best for photo. Blue sky with light house. Amazing

Better known that Tokkari-sho it seems though I prefer the latter. Still, they are next to each other and one can enjoy both. Can be quite spectacular with the right sky/sun (see attached pitcure thought, again, picture can not really convey how great it is).

It's a 2.7 km walk uphill from Bokoi Station, and once you are at the top, the lighthouse scenery makes you go "Wow!" for a mere split second... You wonder why the viewing platform is still closed for some unknown reason or not completed because...More
