Muroran Port(area:HOKKAIDO/HOKKAIDO)

Spring Winter

The Muroran Port is located on the eastern tip of Hokkaido's Uchiura Bay. From old times it has been known as a fine natural harbor, and with the opening of the port in 1872, it has played an important role in Hokkaido's overall development as a strategic point for sea and ground traffic and as an industrial base to support central Hokkaido.
Muroan is a heavy chemical/heavy industry city that has developed mainly with the steel industry but also with shipbuilding, coal forwarding, and oil refining. It's also called "Muroan - the city of steel."
Muroan's name comes from the Ainu words, "Mo Ruerani," meaning "the bottom of a little slope."
