Aomori #Day4-2 Tappi cape and route 339

We were going to Tappi cape after the event, but we get to a port by mistake.

However after walking around here it finds out that here is one of the places we wanted to visit. It is Kaidan kokudo, or route 339 of national highway. Usually national highway is road, right? But route 339 is all made of stone step. Stone step with beautiful hydrangea is registered to national highway of Japan.


The end of route 339. We start to walk up from here.

Luckily we arrive at the end of one. We are happy to come by chance, then start to walk up. Hydrangea and stone step perfectly match. Just then the sun comes out. The ocean we can see from here is beautiful blue. At the end of route 339, it's actually the start of one, there is a sign that says "Go route 339 from here!" We realize that we started walking from the end.


On the way of route 339. Hydrangea is still blooming even in August and each one is so big!

Walking around here, we can see a symbol of Tappi cape. We can also arrive at Tappi cape by chance. There is a stone monument and the song of Tsugaru kaikyo ohashi is playing that comes from this area. Here ended up being our actual goal. The lyric has the word "Tappi cape" and when I hear it I am impressed that we come here. Even after we leave I can't stop singing the song. The lyric is engraved on the monument by the way.


Stones in front of the stone monument come from wave.

Then we start to walk down to the place where our car is. On the way we can see such a beautiful sight. I think we're lucky we started to walk from the end. The time the sun is being out and we're walking down is good timing.

体験坑道が終わり、竜飛岬へ行こうと思ったら、違う港に着いてしまったんだけど、でもそこが、行きたかった場所のひとつ、階段国道の場所だったことに気づいた!
あじさいに囲まれた石段が国道に登録されているんですね。
私たちは運よく、国道の終わり側に来たのです!
運よく見つけてテンション上がって、登った!アジサイと石段がとっても合ってた。この時ちょうど晴れて、海がとっても綺麗な青色だった。国道を登り終えたら、「階段国道、ここから」という大きな看板が隣にあって、あ、入り口はここなのねって。笑
そしてその隣に竜飛岬のシンボル、石碑と津軽海峡大橋の音楽が流れていました。ここが本当のゴールだったのです。津軽海峡大橋の歌詞に、竜飛岬っていうワードがまんま入ってて、ここかーー!となりました。それからしばらく、津軽海峡大橋を歌い続ける。笑
車を止めた場所まで、また階段国道を下る!この下った時の景色が本当に本当にきれいで、逆に下から来てよかったなって思ったよ。晴れのタイミングと、下ったタイミングがめちゃめちゃ合った。
