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. There is lots to see and do, and while we were there we saw a wild fox and some deer. There is also a little iceberg museum beside the closest souvenir shop. They save bits of icebergs, and display them with stuffed animals...

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 also find on the top of the hill several monuments that are very interesting. There are restaurants and shops on the location. There is free parking and the attraction is for free. We enjoyed it.

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.
