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.

  • And went to the end of the year. Translation by bus from Wakkanai station was seen done in the northernmost, extremly low temperature and strong wind, but wind-chill factor but also less tourists, was to name a few? Are most shops did not open. During the Sunrise, it is Fireworks. Snow blowers full I was activity. Wow was a strong wind, but from soya Cape Lookout is excellent.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • The most north point of Japan. Everything in here is fancy to have a title of "the most north", such as "the most north toilet", "the most north restaurant", "the most north shop"...etc. You can also purchase the certification to prove that you have been to the most north point of Japan. If the weather is nice, then you can even see Russia. Wind is strong, since here is a cape.

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.
