Hoppokan Nostalgia House北方館・望郷の家

Museum / Science Museum

This facility is inside Bokyo no Misaki Park, at the eastern tip of Cape Nosappu. It was built to display materials helping to locate the Northern Territories. The local geography and poor climate conditions result in lots of days with terrible fog, restricting vision, so this facility was built to help encourage public recognition and to support the spirits of those who once lived on the islands. It helps educate the public about the origins and history of the islands. There are also displays of materials relating to the lifestyles of the residents who called the islands home, as well as the old city scape and maps showing the old addresses, all filled with prayers for the lost homes. It's a wonderful place to learn about these historic islands.

U can see many of islands which suppose belong to Japan in the sunny day.
This place is rather different from other area in Japan, I guessed.
Somehow rather u can feel the feeling of Japanese...

Excellent place to sea watching from. Birds included five species of auks together with Spectacled Guillemot.
Reviewed:2015/03/10 Good bird watching
We went bird watching at Cape Nosappu in January.

There was snow everywhere and the wind was bitter. We spent a couple of session here sheltering by the lighthouse looking out over the Straights...

          Hokkaido Areas


          Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
