Western Hokkaido: Shakotan Blue Underwater Observation Boat & Luxurious Sea Urchin Rice Bowl


A wonderful day trip to the Shakotan Peninsula awaits! 1. Cape Kamui The most popular place on the peninsula, look forward to exploring the cape which protrudes out into the Sea of Japan. The combination of the mighty white cliffs, the deep blue sea and the refreshing sea breeze is fantastic! 2. Shimamui Coast One of Japan's 100 Most Beautiful Beaches. Enjoy the views of the blue sea and the precipitous cliffs extending along the coast from the observation deck. 3. Underwater Observation Boat Enjoy a 40 minute boat cruise where you can see the beautifully pristine waters of Shakotan known as 'Shakotan Blue' as well as scenic spots only accessible by boat. The boat enables passengers to see through from the bottom! 4. Sea urchin rice bowl Tuck into a luxurious sea urchin rice bowl, which is the specialty of Shakotan. A generous portion of sea urchin means you won't be able to see the rice underneath! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [Additional Information] What's included Transportation, accommodation, meal(s), admission fee(s) specified in the itinerary and taxes. *None of these expenses will be refunded even if the participant does not use them for whatever reason.
