Enjoy the intensifying brilliance as the sun sets, setting the stage for a truly romantic atmosphere.

Factory Nightscape from the Sea

Muroran, also known as the steel city, is home to numerous factories along its port. Savor the panoramic nightscape that can only be witnessed from the sea.
In 2011, Japan established the "Top 4 Factory Nightscapes," and Muroran has been one of them since. This created a boom for factory nightscapes.
