30km east of Wakkanai, Sōya-misaki is mainland Japan's northernmost point. Birdwatchers will love the seagulls and terns, while people-watchers will enjoy the stream of tour buses and groups being photographed before the 'northernmost point' monument. This is where length-of-Japan walkers or cyclists either start or finish, so if there's a person getting their photo taken in front of the monument, go up and shake their hand. Buses depart regularly from JR Wakkanai Station (¥2430, 50 minutes).
