This tour takes you along NW 229 to Cape Kamui, the tip of Shakotan Peninsula. From the bus you will see a spectacular view of cliff as well as strange and rough rocks. This year, we have added fall fruit picking (grapes and apples). All paid participants will receive 3 apples each. Visit “Cape Kamui,” the highlight of this course.
Local legend has it that any ship, which has women on board, will sink if it tries to sail past Cape Kamui, which prohibited the presence of women in early times. This is also the subject of Yoshitsune’s lost love story. Today, there is a boardwalk from the parking area to the cape point.
At Rinkoso, we will enjoy a delicious lunch made with local ingredients. On our way home, we will stop in at Misakinoyu, Shakotan to bathe in the hot springs. Indulge in the breathtaking view as you soak in the marvelous hot springs. Feel your body slowly unwind, as you gaze upon the beautiful Sea of Japan from the outdoor bath. This course originates in Otaru, as well as Sapporo, so it is convenient for our guests staying in Otaru.
