Freezing cold (around minus 6 deg celsius) and a howling gale. However, worth every bit of the effort. Bus was easy to arrange from Wakkanai. Was very interested in the various monuments there and was not disappointed - however, due to the middle of winter...More

This is the northern most point of Japan and it’s well worth seeing, you can actually see Russia from here. I can only imagine that some really good seafood would come out of the waters here as the ocean is so clear and clean, I...More

It's northern most point of Japan. It is not always easy to reach the Northern most point of a country. Other than the political significance, there is nothing much special bout this place. I don't mean it is not nice. It is a very nice...More

It's the most north point in Japan. Buy a return ticket from bus station inside JR Wakkanai... 50 mins ride one way... Bus no 1. Pick the schedule. You don't want to miss the bus to go back in Wakkanai. It's very cold there because...More
