Noshappu Cape (ノシャップ岬)

This cape takes its name from Ainu-language phrases meaning “the cape that juts out like a jaw” and “the place where waves are broken up.” There are views of Mt. Rishiri and Rebunto Island, and the island of Sakhalin is just visible in the distance; the sight of the sun setting below the horizon is especially beautiful. Visitors can also look round Noshappu Aquarium, where they can view a variety of fish that live in the seas of Hokkaido, including the mysterious Sakhalin Taimen.

Review of Cape Noshappu

We reached Wakkanai just in time to see the sunset at Cape Noshappu. At this time of the year, there wasnt too many people. Fortunately for us, the weather was fantastic.
Reviewed:2019/09/27 Come here for the Sunset
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.

By having visited Wakkanai, we decided to stop by Cape Noshappu.

It was late August but already felt chilly.

It’s a pointing out at the end of Japan Sea and one can see strong currents from the Sea...

          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.
