The cape opposite Cape Soya, the northernmost cape in Hokkaido Prefecture. The word “Noshappu” is said to have been derived from the Ainu word “not-sam,” which means “where the cape juts out like a chin.” The cape offers a great view of Mount Rishiri and Rebun Island, as well as the outline of Sakhalin, and is known for being a scenic spot from which to watch the sunset. In the summer, you can also see people harvesting Rishiri kombu. The Wakkanai Lighthouse, which is the second tallest lighthouse in Japan, is also located nearby.
