OCEANSIDE TASTES

Muroran's name comes from Ainu words meaning "the bottom of a little slope." And at the bottom of this slop you’ll find delicious food, impressive architecture, and stunning natural scenery. The coal and iron industries have driven Muroran’s economy for centuries and this forging port still hums with activity.

For foodies looking for some local flavor, you’ll want to try out some curry ramen. You’re probably already familiar with the other kinds of ramen—miso, salt, and soy-based versions—but curry ramen is a popular unique treat and local favorite in Muroran.

The natural landscape is where Muroran derives its name and it’s also one of the biggest draws for travelers. Head up to the observatory at Cape Chikyu and take in the view from 147 meters up, along the 8-mile coastline.
