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 Senboshi-misaki Park

The harbor seal swims leisurely in the pond, and seem to be borrowed from Wakkanai Noshappu Cold Current Museum (ノシャップ寒流水族館) or seem to be taken care of in the sea near the shore, and it is different harbor seal every year, so the harbor seal sometimes is not at the pond. By the way, feeds for the harbor seal are sold at the souvenir shop beside the pond. Probably the harbor seal might be friendly very much because it want to eat the feeds. Dried Rishiri Kombu and fresh sea urchin are sold at the shop, too.
