July 8th, 2014

Cape Nosappu (納沙布岬は) is in the the easternmost tip of Nemuro Peninsula (根室半島) and is the easternmost tip in Japan mainland, too. It is a picturesque scenery that tourists can look over a scenery such as four northern islands (北方四島) and Shiretoko Peninsula (知床半島). Trees can hardly grow up because it is windy in the Nemuro Peninsula, the ground is covered with grass, and milk cows and horses native to Hokkaidoa can be seen on the meadow. A scenery such as a typical Hokkaido spreads over, and Hokkaido enthusiast can not help enjoying.

Nosappumisaki Lighthouse (納沙布岬灯台) built in 1872 is the oldest lighthouse in Hokkaido and was chosen as "50 Best Lighthouses in Japan". There are a monument called Linking Bridge of Four Northern Islands (四島の架け橋) with 13 m in height and Aurora Tower (オーロラタワー) with 96 m in height in the same site. Because the Linking Bridge of Four Northern Islands has an interesting form, it is one of top photography spots in the Cape Nosappu. In addition, there are Hoppoukan Hall Boukyo-no-Ie (北方館 望郷の家), restaurants, a sightseeing center and a restroom. There is Suzuki Shokudo (鈴木食堂) that is famous for raw saury rice bowl (生さんま丼), too.
