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.

  • Japan's northernmost Cape soya is sea and sky are big! On this day the weather was nice, so I saw 40 km ahead of Sakhalin. What I realized is very near the border town. It is indispensable if you go to Wakkanai, scenic points.

  • I went in the summer. Sights, tourist season, many people felt. Early in the morning, people less and objets d'art and sea views. Soya hill side has several restaurants, located along the highway gas station lets you shell strap which as the northernmost. In the winter season is coming.

  • 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
  • Very nice POI, we went to Rishiri after that, Russian influence all over the place was very nice !
  • Beautiful view (when the weather is nice) also not very busy which was lovely.
