Shiroi Koibito no Oka is so named for its view of the mountainous backdrop, which closely resembles that depicted on the packaging of "Shiroi Koibito," a well-known brand of cookies from Hokkaido.
It is also a popular viewpoint for the conical shape of Mount Rishiri, the symbol of the island. Couples who propose here are issued with a proposal certificate approved by Ishiya, the maker of Shiroi Koibito cookies. (Proof of proposal, such as photos, are required in order to receive a certificate.)
