Cape Soya

This is the farthest sightseeing spot where tourists want to visit once. It is 45°31'22" N and becomes the northernmost part of Japan for the place that general person can go. "The monument of the Japan's northernmost ground" stands on the tip of the cape, and other than the Rishiri Island and Rebun Island, the figure of Sakhalin island is seen in the distance of 43km over the sea. The monument designed the tetrahedron which modelled one ridge of the polestar, and a letter of N meaning the north is designed in the central part. It is a perfect spot to take a souvenir picture. As there are statue of Rinzou Mamiya and the Soyamisaki music monument in the neighboring area, let's take a walk.
