Rishiri Island seen from the summit of Mt Rebun
Rebun Island is located 60 km west of Wakkanai, Japan’s northernmost city. The highest mountain on the island. It is located at the end of a gentle mountain trail and is an easy place to get to, but its topographical environment means that it reaches the forest limit at around 350 metres. From the summit you can see the whole of Rebun Island, as well as Rishiri Island on the opposite shore, the main island of Hokkaido and Sakhalin Island.
