Cape Noshappu, Wakkanai

3.2
Enjoy delicious seafood and the attractive seascape at Cape Noshappu, with views of the islands of Rishiri and Rebun. As you walk along the coastline, keep your eyes out for spotted seals dozing on the coast. You can delve further into the marine life at the nearby aquarium, which hosts seals and many other animals from ocean's depths. Stop in one of the eateries for the chance to try fresh octopus, squid, flounder, and Hokkaido's most famous sea urchin bowl. Note that sunsets are particularly dramatic here, with ribbons of vibrant color stretched across the horizon. Cape Noshappu is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Wakkanai Edition.

  • We reached Wakkanai just in time to see the sunset at Cape Noshappu. At this time of the year, there wasn't too many people. Fortunately for us, the weather was fantastic.  more »
  • Just 15 minutes drive from the JR Wakkanai Station to this nice open spot (next to the aquarium) to breath in the fresh air and see the gorgeous sunset.  more »
