Hello,

Has anyone been here? I think it is off of Hokkaido. I would love to go there and take a vacation.

Hm, looks like a very beautiful place indeed. Perhaps Moyashi can give you a few hints, he's in Sapporo. ;)

Just collected a few web sites related to Rishiri (I am sure you've checked them already):

Deborah, you could go one step further and visit web sites offering live webcams located in Japan. Watching those live stills from Japan made me feel much closer when I was separated from my gf (now wife). :emoji_wink:

Our directory

=> Webcams | Japan Forum

Glad you liked it, Deborah!

And while watching Japan through live cams you can also tune it to some Japan-related online radio stations:

Now that's what I call virtuality! :emoji_wink:

Yep, Rishiri and Rebun are about 6 hours from Sapporo by car, with a 1-2 ferry ride across.

They are very beautiful from what I here ... probably better than going to Mt. Fuji which literally "STINKS".

I haven't been there personally but are definitely on my list of places to finish off my coverage of Hokkaido.

If you plan on going plan for the months of July and August ... all others are pretty cold.

Although, if you come in June you can see the Yosakoi Festival which is just fun to watch. Similar to traditional hand twitching dances from down south but done to more modern music and speakers.

Plus, you get a chance to go to the beer garden festivals too!

Only problem with Hokkaido is that it's not Japan.
