A beautiful peninsula surrounded by clear blue waters. Enjoy a variety of outdoor sports at a large mountain resort area with numerous hot springs.

The Shakotan-hanto Peninsula, in western Hokkaido, juts into the Sea of Japan and forms a beautiful coastline full of variety and surrounded by clear water. The area from Cape O-gon to Cape Shakotan and Cape Kamui is Hokkaido's only sea park. Rental cars are available at the station in Yoichi, which is at the base of the peninsula. Using this as a starting point, you can drive around the peninsula on a single road.

A seabed sightseeing boat leaves from Bikuni Port, and you can see Shakotan's deep blue sea from the boat's underwater glass observation room. In addition, the nearby Yoichi Space Museum commemorates Mamoru Mori, the astronaut who was born there. At the museum you can experience being a space shuttle pilot using a simulation device.
 
Niseko is a large resort area encompassing Mt. Yotei-zan, which looks like Mt. Fuji, and has the Niseko Mountain Range at its center. You can enjoy a variety of outdoor sports throughout the year, including skiing, hiking and rafting. There are also so many hot springs that it is said to take six days to visit them all, even if you bathe three times a day! There is also a park where fresh water gushes out from Mt. Yotei-zan, known as the source of what is said to be one of Japan's 100 best waters.
