On the day I came to Otaru, I came to the Zhujin Observatory specially. Because the scenery here revitalized the nearby hotel, it was going to close down. It was because the scenery was publicized. Many foreign tourists moved in and the business was booming~
Muroran is a small city in Hokkaido and should be considered a relatively unpopular tourist destination. The Zhujin Observatory is located on the top near Muroran. From the observatory, you can overlook the Shiratori Bridge and the entire city.
From the Jutsu Observatory, you can overlook the city of Otaru. The view is great, but the snow-covered beach and the north wind blows, and it feels very lonely and lonely. It is more comfortable in summer. Zhujin has been fishing gallfish since the Edo period. In the 30th year of the Meiji era, the catch reached 95 tons, accounting for 70% of Hokkaido’s total fishery production. At that time, this small fishing village had a great influence on the economy of Hokkaido. The fish also determines the fate of Zhujin, so walking here is full of historical traces related to the fish.
The Otaru Jutsu Observatory, facing the sea, dotted with white sailboats on the blue sea, is really beautiful! In fact, we were shopping and eating in the streets of Otaru very casually. We accidentally saw a large poster on the whole wall of beautiful scenery, so we found the Zhujin Observatory according to the picture. The only difference is that the lighthouse seems to be under maintenance and may need to be repainted, not the red and white colors we saw on the way.
You can still see a lot of things in this one. It’s worth seeing. It’s really good. I came with a friend.
