Rebun Island, Rebun-cho

4.6
#1 of 17 in Things to do in Rebun-cho
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. Put Rebun Island into our Rebun-cho trip builder app and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  •  Rebun Island, there are various hiking trails, but I recommend the Rebun waterfall course.  REI statement falls course was recommended to stay Cape courses thought at the outset, but due to high winds. The result is excellent! Scenic point called Heidi Valley on their way to a REI statement falls. Located in Rebun Island in the sky.  Time and physical location not resign if remorse on the road to the ropes and everyone can go anywhere but are recommended to visit. People became interested in the Islands North of Rebun Island was costs such as lodging more expensive compared to the other islands, but should be taken.
