There is an island called Rebun Island in Hokkaido, Japan.
This island is a solitary island.
However, on this island, you can see beautiful alpine plants.
I took a ferry from Nagoya to Hokkaido.
This ferry is called Pacific Ferry.（Taiheiyo Ferry）
Nagoya is also Japan’s leading industrial city and the home of Toyota Motor Corporation.
The ferry is comfortable.
You can also watch movies.
There will also be a concert.
Taiheiyo Ferry goes to Shizuoka, Tokyo, and Sendai off to Hokkaido.
I entered Sapporo from Tomakomai Port. （苫小牧港）Sapporo is the center of Hokkaido.
From there, take a long-distance bus to Wakkanai.
Wakkanai is the northernmost tip of Hokkaido.
Sapporo is a city of food, sex, tourism and pleasure.
I will take Wakkanai on a long-distance bus from late night.
When traveling in Hokkaido, you can enjoy the travel experience by taking a bus or train rather than an airplane.
And early morning the next day ?
I took a ferry from Wakkanai to Rebun Island.
This ferry will not be dispatched when the waves are high.
Ships going to Wakkanai and Rebun Island often shake.
Those who are vulnerable to seasickness should be careful.
The weather on Rebun Island is rainy.
But the day I landed was sunny.
Rebun Island is extremely dry.
Rishiri Island is next to Rebun Island.
And in Rishiri Island,
there is Rishiri mountain that represents Japan.
I went around the island by bicycle rental.
We also used buses.
Rebun Island is a small island.
The bus is recommended for visiting Rebun Island.
The only economy on the island is tourism and fishing. Also, because it is in the border area with Russia, the government is moving with the military stationing expenses.
This island is very bad economy. For this reason, tourist shops are expensive.
Rebun Island has a beautiful sea.
There are no trees on Rebun Island.
The reason is that a long time ago, a forest fire broke out and the forest burned.
And the forest disappeared and the sea was thinning.
There are many trails on this island.
There is also a campsite.
There is also a legend of Ainu.
Rebun Island is a different world of Japan.
This scene has not changed for thousands of years.
Rebun Island is famous for its alpine plants.
In Rebun Island, alpine plants bloom from zero meters above sea level.
