If you would like to try the food for the soul of the Wakkanai people, try Chamen.
It is fried ramen noodles topped with thick sauce, vegetables, seafood and meat. It is a hearty meal.

Welcome to Wakkani, Hokkaido! My name is Chie Moue. I am an English licensed Guide-Interpreter and also a forest instructor. If you love nature and would like to know more about the forests in Hokkaido, I am one of the most informative and experienced nature guide.
Now I live in Wakkanai, the northernmost place of Japan.The city is blessed with defined seasons, unique nature, fresh seafood, dairy products and Soya Black Angus. Since it is a border city to Sakhalin, Russia, it also has a nostalgic atmosphere and interesting history.
If you are planning to visit Rishiri or Rebun islands, it would be a chance to experience both interesting Japanese culture and nature at the same time! You can’t miss this opportunity!
I would love to help you discover something special in Wakkanai and Hokkaido and help you make unforgettable memories in Japan.
If you have any questions about Hokkaido, please feel free to ask me. I would be happy to help you create an interesting itinerary.
