Come and Enjoy a Unique Breakwater Dome: An Architectural Beauty with a Historical Feel – HOKKAIDO LOVE!

Wakkanai Port Breakwater Dome was built when the North Wharf was used as a departure and arrival point for the former Sakhalin route. Intended to protect roads and railroads from the waves because of the strong winds throughout the four seasons, this impressive architectural piece became a symbol of the times as it crowded with people crossing the Sakhalin. Go and discover why this breakwater has attracted attention for its modern construction, reminiscent of ancient Roman architecture! A visit will quickly show you why it is now designated as a heritage site of Hokkaido.
