Wind turbines of Otonrui Wind Farm – a spectacular sight that is distinctive of Hokkaido

Autumn, Sights, Spring, Summer

At Otonrui Wind Farm located in the southern area of Sarobetsu Moor, 28 100-m wind turbines are erected side by side in one straight line for the length of 3.1km. “Otonrui” means “the road on the shore” in Ainu language, and the sight of huge wind turbines lined up and catching the wind on such a large scale overwhelms anyone who witnesses it.
