The Kustugata is a hub town in the western part of the Rishiri Island. Besides the Kustugata-misaki Park, there are the Kustugata Port that Luxury Cruise Ships call at, restaurants, souvenir shops, accommodations and facilities for day trip bathing. Especially, Rishiri Ramen Miraku Head Office (利尻らーめん味楽本店) is famous, and it always has a long line. I ate their ramen, and it was tasty.

The area is 24,166 ha. It consists of 2 islands, wetlands and the coast, and beautiful nature such as the sea, mountains, wild flowers and wetlands is highlight.

Look of Kustugata-misaki Park

The park is on the lava rocks from Mt. Rishirifuji. A observation deck, Mini Visitor Center, a wooden path are built on the rocky place, and rocky seaside, the Mt Rishirifuji and Rebun Island can be seen. Alpine plants grow along the wooden path, and grow thick so as to mistake those for weeds. Black lily and Yezo Daylily also grow naturally. Although the park is small scale, the only view from here can be seen.
