Drop by if in the region! Most north point of Japan

We were there together with many tourists. It's Japan's most north point, so it's quite popular. On a clear day it would be possible apparently to see Russia (Sakhalin). You will... read more

Freezing cold (around minus 6 deg celsius) and a howling gale. However, worth every bit of the effort. Bus was easy to arrange from Wakkanai. Was very interested in the various monuments there and was not disappointed - however, due to the middle of winter weather a couple (USS Wahoo) were covered with blue plastic to protect them. If you... More

Took a bus from Wakkanai train station to Cape Soya or Say Misaki. This is know as the northernmost point of Japan. The bus ride cost JPY 1350 one-way or 2500 return. However, to buy the return ticket, you need to buy it from the bus terminal before boarding. The bus journey took about 50 minutes, along a coastal route... More

Finally, we reached the northernmost point of Japan with a sense of satisfaction and happiness. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery despite the blustery icy wind blowing at 45 km/hr, almost blowing us off our feet. Hands were freezing cold and some of our handphone cameras were jammed. None the less, a great experience, never experience before.

When standing under the statue that proclaims that we are now standing at the northernmost point of Japan, we felt such a great sense of achievement and happiness. Winds are cold and sharp and so sweet and fresh. Do bring warm clothings and wear the appropriate shoes to avoid slipping. And take lots of panoramic pictures from this vantage point

Great spot to visit. We wanted to go as far north as we could in Japan, and this is it. We took the JR train from Sapporo to Wakkanai, and from there we got a bus to Cape Soya. Ask in the tourist info centre re tickets. You have just under an hour at the Cape until the return bus.... More

This is the northern most point of Japan and it’s well worth seeing, you can actually see Russia from here. I can only imagine that some really good seafood would come out of the waters here as the ocean is so clear and clean, I put my foot into the water expecting to be cold but it was surprisingly warm.

It's northern most point of Japan. It is not always easy to reach the Northern most point of a country. Other than the political significance, there is nothing much special bout this place. I don't mean it is not nice. It is a very nice beach and a great view and must be a part of your trip to Wakkanai... More

It's the most north point in Japan. Buy a return ticket from bus station inside JR Wakkanai... 50 mins ride one way... Bus no 1. Pick the schedule. You don't want to miss the bus to go back in Wakkanai. It's very cold there because of the wind but it's worth it. There are ramen restaurant on the uphill. The... More
