檜山・追分ソーランライン観光案内 | Hiyama & Oiwake Soran Line Travel

函館を起点に渡島半島南西部から檜山にかけての風光明媚な海岸線を辿るこのルートは、北海道では稀有な武家時代の面影が随所に垣間見られる。

北海道で唯一の城下町松前と、北前船の交易で栄えた江差を中心に、趣きのある寺社や商家などの歴史的建造物が残り、本州から伝わった郷土芸能や民謡が脈々と受け継がれている。新鮮な海の幸と人情味にあふれる奥尻島にも足を伸ばしてみたい。

HIYAMA & OIWAKE SORAN LINE The spectacular coastal Oiwake Soran Line, stretch south from the Matsumae Peninsula to Hiyama Region, is the home of Hokkaido’s Japanese tradition and historical heritages dating back to the feudal period. Japan’s northernmost castle town Matsumae and once the island’s main trading center Esashi keeps tasteful buildings and traditional festivals. The coastline of Hiyama and a friendly remote island of Okushiri-to offers rugged headlands and pleasant beaches jutting into the clear ocean.
