何十年ぶりかに地球岬へ。 道路も以前より良くなってて、また展望台や鐘などもあり観光地っぽくなってます。 観光バスも来ていて結構人がいました。 売店は相変わらずあんまり無いですが、まあこんなものでしょうか。 水平線が見渡せるし、函館方面も見えるので、一度は行ってみてもいいと思います。 more »I went to Cape Earth for the first time in decades. The road is getting better than before, and there are observation decks and bells, so it looks like a tourist spot. There was a sightseeing bus, too. There are not many shops as usual, but is it such a thing? You can see the horizon and you can see the Hakodate area, so I think you can go there once.
Such a waste that not many foreign tourists come here - it is definitely beautiful! We got here just before sunset, so we managed to witness a magnifent view of the sun setting..
The weather can change from time to time. Might be snowy and windy at first but turned clear in a few minute’s time!! Amazing!!
