Wakkanai

— 9 nights

Wind Town

The northernmost city in the country, Wakkanai experiences constant exposure to the elements, with windy and snow-covered winters perhaps its main claim to fame on a national level.
Venture out of the city with trips to Reindeer Ranch (in Horonobe-cho), Hamatonbetsu-cho (Veneer Nature Flower Garden & Lake Kutcharo) and Toyotomi-cho (Kabutonuma Park, Miyanodai Observation Tower, &more). The adventure continues: don't miss a visit to Soya Misaki, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Wakkanai City Noshappu Aquarium, get outside with Ororon Line, and trek along White Road.
