Japan 2022: Wakkanai

Magnetic sign on my Tokyo hotel door

I was supposed to fly to Rishiri Island, but the second leg was cancelled due to high winds. So I took the six-hour bus from Sapporo to Wakkanai and grabbed the ferry the next day.

Wakkanai is so far north that the street signs are in Japanese and Russian
