■North Breakwater Dome

I went to a place named the North Breakwater Dome in Wakkanai city area. North breakwater dome is a large breakwater at Wakkanai port in Wakkanai city, Hokkaido. Civil Engineering Association Selection Civil Engineering Heritage, Hokkaido Heritage has been selected.

●What is the north breakwater dome?

It was built over 5 years from 1931 (Showa 6) to serve both as a breakwater at Wakkanai Port and as a transfer passage from the jetty to the station. As the appearance of the breakwater, it was named because it has a dome-like form which is a different color. It is about 14 meters high, 427 meters long, 70 entasised columns that reminiscent of ancient Greek architecture give a fresh impression. It was completely renovated in 1981 (Showa 56).
