Soya Misaki, Wakkanai

(4/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 宗谷岬 又名CAPE SOYA 是日本現行國土的最北端 北鄰宗谷海峽與舊稱樺太島(或是北蝦夷)的庫頁島相望 樺太島也是日俄領土爭議的北方四島之一 宗谷岬當地有一間紀念品店(流冰館) 兩間餐廳 還有四間民宿 此外也有旅客休息的地方 以及巴士候車屋(因為真的很冷) 餐廳我就不昧著良心評論了 紀念品店可以買最北端到著的紀念明信片 此外紀念品店門口有現在的時鐘 日期 與溫度 也是大家拍照的熱門景點之一 宗...  more »
  • As far as the sea. Horizon will be where you can enjoy so much. Weather permitting, is faintly visible on Sakhalin Island. Rises in the hills behind and further extends to the below views.

  • 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.
  • I came here during my motorcycle trip around Japan, reaching the northern tip of Cape Soya. It is an accomplish when you get here. I came here during the autumn but, because its the northern tip, it was actually quite cold up here. You can drink some warm soup at a small local restaurant next to the tip, which is quite relieving. Its also cool because many other bikers from around Japan also strive to reach this point, so may be able to make some new people here (I made some biker friends from Hiroshima and Osaka when I came here.)
  • a bit hazy so difficult to see russia clearly, but still worth a visit
  • Northernmost point of Hokkaido. We've been there during spring, but the place offers different and beautiful landscapes in the other seasons.
  • Northern most point of Japan, great views and you can even see Russia
