Soya Misaki, Wakkanai

4.0
#1 of 32 in Things to do in Wakkanai
Landmark Tourist Spot
Head to Soya Misaki, thought of as the northernmost point in the country. While a small uninhabited island offshore truly represents the northernmost point of Japan, the cape has historically claimed the title, and includes a memorial celebrating it. A number of other memorials highlight this coastal stretch, made in memory of different tragedies in the region, including the shooting down of a Korean Air flight in 1983, and the sinking of the USS Wahoo in October 1943. A visit to Soya Misaki represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Wakkanai itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

Fresh seafood is a lot of wind so cold even in summer depending on the weather, but so much time was sold at souvenir shops around the soup and skewer really go right through the body and delicious. Wide parking and toilets happy summer wonder car night someone note that too twice car night and sunrise over the sea as light up the fantastic monuments of the night I have seen and touched the.

  • One of the best showplays is not just about, Hokkaido, but also all of Japan. However, when I got there, the workload of Chinese tourists disappointed me.
  • Free wifi is available. There is a big area on the mountain behind this mark. And lots of sculptures related to different events in that area too. Seems to be over dense...
  • Just stunningly beautiful. You can see Russia at the other side of the ocean.
  • Well, this is the most northern part of japan. Being here makes my day. U can jump in bus no 2 in infront of JR terminal of wakkanoi. One way ¥1250. Make sure u take note of the timing of the return bus as well as the bus is in approx. 2 hrs interval. It is very cold and windy at the cape. During good weather, u can see Russia island from the cape.
  • Northernmost part of Japan main land. Good experience.

Where to stay in Wakkanai

Wakkanai has a good mix of accommodations, primarily located close to the two main train stations. Look out for side-street hostels providing particularly budget-friendly options, along with upmarket hotels close to the shops and restaurants of the newly developed port areas. Many visitors choose instead to stay on the islands of Rebun and Rishiri, with the two flower-covered landmasses chief among the regional highlights and possessing a good range of lodgings, including traditional ryokans with onsite onsens.
