Have you ever heard of Rishiri Island?
Driving on the route 232, beautiful Konide will catch your eyes. It is the same size as Ile des Pins in New Caledonia.
It is much colder on the island than southern islands but the seafood is much nicer and tastful.
The silhouette of the island struck an emotional chord with me.
The island has very nice camping site near the hot spa ONSEN but this time we stayed in the camp site in Shosanbetsu village along the route 232..
The coast line was so beautiful that I was eager to swim in spite of the coldness of the sea water.
I will visit Rishiri and Rebun island this year.
