Kutsugata Port(area:HOKKAIDO/HOKKAIDO)

Islands Winter

The Kutsugata Port, which lies 52km by sea from Noshappu Cape in the northernmost part of Hokkaido, is a local port situated in West of Rishiri-cho on Rishiri Island.
Since 2003, major improvements have been continuing on 7.5-meter deep quays as a disaster countermeasure against any major earthquakes on this remote island. Work has also been proceeding on the quays to berth the 30,000 ton class large cruise ships that call on the port each year.
Part of the port provisionally began service from June 2006, with both Japanese and foreign registered boats now entering the port.
Full operation began in 2011, providing even more convenience to large cruise ships, and there are high hopes that it will become a base for more cruises to remote islands in the future.
