(150+ reviews on the web)
Island
Visit hilltop fortifications of ancient Ainu people and observe Japanese Edelweiss at Rebun Island. Stretching 29 km (18 mi) from north to south and 8 km (5 mi) from east to west, the island provides trekking routes through nature, as the island is part of a larger national park. You can find trail maps in English at the ferry area. Over 300 varieties of rare alpine flowers can be spotted on an 8-hour hike across the island and shorter well-marked scenic trails. While here, taste sea urchins, a specialty of the area. Due to the infrequency of buses, you may consider renting a car. Plan to visit Rebun Island during your Rebun-cho vacation using our convenient Rebun-cho vacation planner.
