Did you know that there is a “Top 3 Sunsets in the World”? The first is Manila, Philippines, then Bali, Indonesia and Kurshio in Hokkaido, Japan. Since around 1965 when foreign ships first sailed into the Port of Kushiro, sailors from around the world have marveled at the sunsets in Kushiro. In the same year, the “Port of Kushiro Sunset” was selected as one of the top 10 scenic locations.
One famous location for viewing the “Kushiro sunset” is the Nusamai Bridge. The Nusamai Bridge is an award winning tourist location enjoyed by many locals and tourists when the sun goes down. The contrast between the sunset and the shadows cast from and the Statues of Four Seasons, boats in the port and the lighthouse is truly spectacular. The shades of color in the orange drenched sky and the silhouette of the statue looks just like a picture.
The best season to see the award winning sunset is when the skies are clear from fall to winter. Why not take a picture in your own mind of the magical golden hour loved by sailors around the world?
