Soya Misaki, Wakkanai

4.1
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. Put Soya Misaki and other Wakkanai attractions into our Wakkanai planning app , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Is a Cape with a sense of openness. In the footpath down to stretch their legs and opens up an extraordinary landscape.

  • It is Japan's northern most point. Tourists are coming, but this time of year is still a parky, lonely feeling. About 20 kilometers from the airport so I may come may.

  • It is Japan's northernmost Cape. Then you can see 40 km Sakhalin or even if it is fine, came at the end of that.

  • The most north point of Japan. Clean, quiet and so memorable! Driving here along which is a kind of joyfulness! Enjoy the snow, blue sky, blue ocean. Remember to grab a hundred Yen to get a certification of arrival of northest point. Huge parking space near by!
  • Northernmost point in Japan. Memorable if a bit touristy with typically cool, local Japanese souvenirs. Many nice park areas. Spectacular view on a clear, sunny day.
  • On a motorbike it can be a bit of a slog as there's not much shelter from the wind so bear that in mind. Plenty of parking, some good views, all in all a decent stop off on a tour of Hokkaido
  • So cool and so windy!
  • Went to this place by the first bus. It was freezing cold even though already March but actually worth it :)
