Wakkanai Port(area:HOKKAIDO/HOKKAIDO)

Winter

As Japan's farthest north major port, the Wakkanai Port serves as a base for logistics in northern Hokkaido, as well as for coastal and offshore fishing. It also serves an important role as a transport hub connecting Rishiri Island, Rebun Island, and Sakhalin by ferry. It is blessed by bountiful ocean and land resources all around, and has an alluring natural beauty, starting with the Soya Hill. The North Breakwater Dome, a symbol of the port, was constructed in 1936 as a breakwater. It was designated as a heritage of Hokkaido because of its structure which is reminiscent of ancient Roman architecture. It has no parallel anywhere else in the world.
