Jump to navigation Jump to search

Rishiri-Rebun-Sarobetsu National Park (利尻礼文サロベツ国立公園) is on the north-west tip of Hokkaido, Japan. The two islands are the main attraction of the area, featuring native wildflowers, spectacular landscapes and fantastic hiking for both experienced and beginner hikers.

  • Rishiri-to (利尻島) — an island
  • Rebun-to (礼文島) — an island
  • Wakasakanai Coast (稚咲内海岸) — an adjacent section of coastline on Hokkaido

The park covers 212 km² (82 sq mi), and is noted for its alpine flora and views of volcanic mountains and areas formed by marine erosion. The park is surrounded by fishing grounds, and the coastal areas of the park are rich in kelp.

Get in[edit]

The coastal areas of the national park can be accessed from Japan National Route 40, known as the Wakkanai National Highway.

Rishiri and Rebun islands are accessible by ferry from Wakkanai.
