Observe the earth from a spot where it actually looks round at Cape Chikyu and ring a bell for happiness. Voted the most beautiful scene in Japan, this favorite tourist spot attracts both locals and foreigners year-round, displaying nature at its best. A white octagonal-shape lighthouse and an observatory built at 147 m (482 ft) above the sea level gives the opportunity to take photos overlooking the bay. Listen to sheer force of waves endlessly smashing against rocks and watch the panorama overlooking the bay. You can also watch for dolphins and whales across the Uchiura Bay.

  • Worth going all the way because you can see 360-degree views, weather permitting. You'd better stop but the wind was strong, so weather is not good. You can take without people taking pictures so no one in Sapporo and Hakodate as well.
