Look at Hiyoriyama Lighthouse （日和山灯台） and "Herring Mansion （小樽市鰊御殿）" at the tip of Akaiwa Rock （赤岩）. Otaru is famous for herring, which were caught a lot near here especially in the 20th century, when some of the fishermen became billionaires and constructed so-called herring mansions like this↓
This observatory is located near Otaru Aquarium （小樽水族館）, in the Otaru-Shakotan Otarukaigan Quasi-National Park （小樽積丹小樽海岸国定公園）.
