    Should I visit you I came to Wakkanai in? In the European-style building but it is quaint. You can walk from Wakkanai station.

    Wakkanai port and roads of the beautiful aerodynamic roof right by the sea, is the northern breakwater dome. But really breakwater if more length is needed? I think. You can walk from Wakkanai station. Wakkanai ANA Crowne Plaza Hotel to stay at and from the top looks very good.

    Popped in a tourist bus. That historic breakwater. It was felt that it was protecting. Clean the touch is felt. I also wanted to Wakkanai, strong wind and wave height required of it.

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.
