Cape Nosappu is the easternmost cape in Hokkaido, where visitors could be forgiven for thinking they have reached the end of the Earth. This cape is famous for having the earliest sunrise in Japan and is a very popular destination to witness the first sunrise on January 1st to welcome in the New Year. The rugged coastline, aggressive seascape beauty, and gorgeous wintry scenes of powdery snow and ice floats are unforgettable sights to behold. Cast your gaze over the ocean from Cape Nosappu, and you may even spot sea otters, harbor seals, or whales.
