Going through the downtown of Esashi Town and heading to the north a little bit, you can find some best points to see the sunset here and there, such as the lookouts beside the national route along the coast facing the Sea of Japan.
Furuhitsu Beach located on the border between Kaminokuni Town and Esashi Town is one of the best points to enjoy the beauty of sunset with the scenery of Seagull Island on your right, the downtown of Kaminokuni, the windmill on the hillside of Mt. Iou and the silhouette of Oshima Ohshima Island on your left.
The silhouette of the seagulls can play the supporting part in the scenery of sunset. From the roadside station in Esashi Town, you may feel the magnificent scale of the sunset.You can go down to the beach called "Shigejirohama" from the parking of the station.
At the end of Edo Era, the battle ship Kaiyo-maru was wrecked. The silhouette of the ship might remind you of the history of the tragedy.
Gokattte Port near the residential area is one of the place from where the scenery of sunset can be savored subtly.
From the hilly area of Tazawa facing the border to Assabu Town, the beautiful scenery like a drawing can be enjoyed.I got the shot in which the rock shaped like a bamboo shoot and the sunset extract the beauty each other.
It is hidden spot to enjoy the sunset. It is located near the JR Station of Esashi Town and the residential Area of Minamigaoka Area.
Please visit Esashi Town that has the longest history in Hokkaido.
