It was another beautiful place worth visiting with the beautiful scenery but again faced with the icy wind. The dolphin symbol was gorgeous. Small and interesting aquarium is nearby. A shop with interesting stuff and seafood is also nearby.

Actually it is a cape like many others, but being the most northern was the reason to pay a visit. A car is handy as public transport does not run often. A lot of Japanese come to visit, so that is part of the fun.
