Cape Nosappu (納沙布岬)

Located at a longitude of 145°49'01'' East, Cape Nosappu is the easternmost point in Hokkaido. As the sunrise here occurs earlier than anywhere else in Japan, many people come here to see the first sunrise of the New Year on New Year’s Day. On a clear day, the Northern Territories (islands that were formerly Japanese territory but are now occupied by Russia) can be seen in the distance; a number of monuments etc. (including the Shima-no-kakehashi Bridge) have been constructed near the Cape to express the desire for the return of the Northern Territories to Japan.

          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.
