Wakkanai is located at the northernmost place of not only Hokkaido but also Japan. Honestly it is not very accesible place and I have never been there yet. But this area has been in my bucket for a long time. This farther place has been attracting me.
This time, I would like to show you the 3-day trip plan. Actually this is a part of my future trip plan. This plan covers these following spots in the very isolcated area of northern Hokkaido:
✔ Wakkanai (the northern most city in Japan) ✔ Cape Soya (the nothern most place in Japan) ✔ Cape Noshappu ✔ Rishiri island ✔ Rebun island
I introduced Peach Higashi Hokkaido Free Pass in the previous post. That covers eastern Hokkaido and available for anybody who arrive in New Chitose airport or Kushiro airport by Peach Airr. In this post, I will show you very similar deal which is Peach Kita Hokkaido Free Pass. This is designed for the trip to northern part of Hokkaido. If you are under 25 years old, you can get this pass at U25 discount rate.
When you go to Wakkanai at North end of Hokkaido, the limited express trains, Soya and Sarobetsu take you to Wakkanai. Soya is operated between Sapporo and Wakkanai and Sarobetsu runs between Asahikawa and Wakkanai.
Both trains are fully covered by JR Pass and Hokkaido Rail Pass. I will show you this train guide and the timetable in this post.
