Watch the Sun Set in the Sea of Japan at Cape Ogon – HOKKAIDO LOVE!

The Ororon Line offers a lot of beautiful views of the sunset over the Sea of Japan. Our recommendation, though, is to catch it from Cape Ogon. This cape once had a watchtower, originally used to spot approaching schools of herring for fishermen. The cape’s name, Ogon, means gold, and got its name from the way approaching schools of herring would sparkle in the setting sun as they gathered around the cape. Nowadays, the magnificent sunset colors the landscape orange and gold, a truly astounding sight to behold.
