Ominato Port(area:TOHOKU/AOMORI)

Spring Autumn Winter

 Port of Ominato in Mutsu City, the northernmost city of the main island of Japan, is located to the northeast of Mutsu Bay, which is the entrance to Shimokita Peninsula. Ominato is an excellent port as the starting point for sightseeing Shimokita Peninsula—which includes Osorezan, one of the three most famous hallowed grounds; Hotokegaura, with its towering strange-shaped white-green rocks; and Omamachi, which is famous for pole and line tuna fishing. Shimokita Peninsula has many fine hot springs with plentiful water and mountain streams reflecting the four beautiful seasons. The peninsula is also blessed with abundant fresh seafood and vegetables from the mountains that attract connoisseurs of good food. From the port, enjoy the view of the highest peak on the peninsula, Mt. Kamafuse, which changes its appearance with the four seasons. Also, the night view of the city along the bay from the observatory of the mountain looks like a butterfly taking off, which is called “swallowtail butterfly-like night view” and is selected as a Japan heritage night view.
