If you can't see the sunrise, go see the sunset? There are several places in Wakkanai to enjoy the sunset. The most popular is the , the name is derived from the language of the Ainu, meaning the cape that stands out like a squat and the place where the waves splash. The Chinese characters are written in the wild. Cold cloth.
In the winter, the sunset time is at 4pm. At three o'clock, I drove to the northwestern tip of Wakkanai. The clouds were thick. I already knew that I didn't have a chance to see the beautiful sunset, but I could see a little light when I arrived.
When the weather is good, you can see Lie Fuji and Rebun Island here. Not far from the Wakkanai lighthouse is 42.7 meters high, the second highest in Japan, the red and white stripes make people think of sailor suits.
Address: Wakkanai-shi 2chome
Approximately 10 minutes drive from Wakkanai Station, or take the bus.
Japans New Years Day has a custom of beginning, referring to the first visit to the shrine temple for the first time of the year to protect the peace. Last year's leap year countdown was spent in front of the Nagoshima Shrine in Naoshima. It was probably too cold in Hokkaido this year and went to sleep early. I remembered it until January 2, and the map shows that there is a North Gate Shrine nearby, and the walking distance is not too far, so I decided to look at it in the past. The
street is mostly covered in snow, no passers-by, only occasional crows call to break the silence. Keep an eye on the street signs in Wakkanai. In addition to the common Japanese and English, there is also a line of Russian.
Yanpo Road was shocked to go to the shrine, and there are so many people waiting in line to pay homage. The shrine began in 1785 and moved here in 1892. After that, it was completely burned and the scale was today. Although it is the largest shrine in the area, it does not appear on the tourism promotion website or the manual. The painted horse is a pattern of swine rushing, and the Yushen sign is also very interesting. It is a small crab. ~

I have always been different from other people's trips. This time I came to Japan's northernmost city, Wakkanai, and hoped to see some different scenery. Wakkanai, located at the northern end of Hokkaido Island, is a harbor city sandwiched between the Sea of Japan and the Sea of Okhotsk. Because of the high winds, there are many days, so it is also known as the "city of the wind." Don't say anything else, this snowy day can still be embarrassing, the most fear is that when the wind rises, the body temperature drops at least 10 degrees.
Looking out from the hotel room, there is a long breakwater in front of it, which leads straight to Zongguwan. The promenade is as striking as an ancient Roman building. After the breakfast turned fine, I immediately walked over to see it.
This breakwater was completed in 1936 and is 427 meters long. A total of 70 huge columns support the semi-arched building, resisting the strong winds and waves of the four seasons. Walking in the promenade is like being on a huge stage, even more mysterious and spectacular. Usually there will be concerts, exhibitions, gathering places, etc., and the utilization rate is very high. There is no snow here, and it becomes a sports venue in the winter. The old lady walks inside, and there are young people who come back and forth.
It is a ten minute walk from Wakkanai Station.
The most popular and popular landmark in the Zongguyi area is the Northmost Land of Japan monument built on a small piece of land reclamation on the northernmost tip of Haitang. The theme of the part of the "North Star" of the Hokkaido Road is the triangular building with a total height of 4.53 meters. The precise position is 45 degrees 31 minutes 22 seconds north latitude and 141 degrees east longitude. In 11 seconds, the weather can be seen from the monument to the land of Sakhalin.
Because it is the northernmost land of Japan, plus the southern birch (southern Sakhalin Island) that was once Japanese territory, it was occupied by the Soviet Union after the end of the Second World War and has since become a foreign land. The Japanese have a very unique and emotional symbolic meaning and become one of the most important tourist attractions in the Daobei area. In addition to the monument, there is a song written by Yoshida Hiroshi and a boat in the boat. It was sung by Chiba Scorpion in 1972, because in 1976, NHKs singing program "Everybody's Song" The music monument of the popular song "Zong Guzhen", which is a popular result (a monument that will play music when someone approaches). In addition, there are a series of facilities around the "most northern end", such as the northernmost store in Japan (Baiwu), the northernmost restaurant (the northernmost end of the dining hall), the northernmost homestay (the northernmost place) and even the most At the northernmost mailbox, the northernmost public toilets will also be the northernmost gas station that will give you the "Japan's most northern fueling certificate" after the passengers have finished the oil.
Wakkanai is the northernmost city in Hokkaido, and the "most northern" landmark is in the northeastern tip of Wakkanai. The first day of the new year is held here.
In the sunny days, the beach looks like a mirror and looks like clouds. It is very beautiful. Zonggu has a triangular monument that symbolizes the North Star, and on the left is the statue of the explorer's palace in the Edo period. When the weather is fine, you can see the snowy mountains in front of you, the Russian island of Sakhalin. Not far from the right, there is a music tablet with the score of the song "Zong Guzhen". Some people will play automatically when they approach, and the melody will float in the wind, making the atmosphere a bit embarrassing.
At the souvenir shop, I bought a certificate for the arrival of the northernmost end. As long as 100 yen, it is really cheap and good~ I will print the date of the visit on the spot, and I can buy a postcard and put it on the medal. There are various "most northern ends" nearby, such as the northernmost store, the northernmost restaurant, the northernmost mailbox, and even the northernmost washroom...
Tokyo has been flying directly to Wakkanai for more than three hours. It is noon here. After the snow, Wakkanai seems to be an ink painting, and the most important thing we have to do today is riding a snowmobile to hunt.
When we arrived, the hunters had already hit a deer. I have only heard that there are some hunting activities in the Russian Far East. I did not expect that such a line could be customized by myself in Hokkaido, Japan. Usually it is two days, but many women in our party still want to go to Sapporo and Xiaoyan, so they only stayed for one day.
At the foot of the mountain, many hunters saw us very happy and showed us a snowmobile. The feeling of riding a snowmobile is a bit like the feeling of driving a sandy car in the desert. A popular man, about an hour or so, can be skilled in riding. With a car in it, you can follow it.
