Located on the northwestern tip of Hokkaido, Japan, Rebun island is a magnificent place to visit. And on this 2 day kayaking tour, I would like to show you several of the quiet island’s lovely highlights.

The trip will begin at 10:00 am, where we will meet at the Kafuka port ferry terminal. At the meeting, we will perform an equipment check, followed by a briefing about the trip to come. Afterwards, we will make our way to the Motochi beach, where we will load our luggage and begin the adventure.

We will start by paddling along the Rebun island’s west shore. During this time, we will pass several lovely highlights, including Jizou Iwa rock, the Kotaki waterfall, the Rebun Take waterfall and area of Uennai.

At approximately 3:00 pm, we will reach our campsite on the island. There, we will pitch our tents and do some exploring. You will be able to also do some snorkeling and kayak fishing. Later we will have dinner before spending the night in the tents.

On the following day, after eating breakfast and cleaning up, we will start paddling to the north. During this time, we will see the Meshikuni-no-saki  peninsula, the Kasube-Iwa rock and the Sukai-Misaki cape. At approximately 3:00 pm, we will reach the Kafuka port ferry terminal, where the journey will conclude.

A wonderful way to explore a lovely island off the coast of Hokkaido, this 2 day kayaking tour is perfect, even for beginners. So send me a request, and let me show you the Rebun island.

I can also take you trekking on this half day trip in Mount Pon in Rishiri, Hokkaido.

About the guide

guide profile img

I was born on the island of Rishiri in 1969. I still live here today! Since my childhood, I have spent most of my time in the sea, going fishing, and in the mountain going skiing. I’m a ski guide (level 2) from the Japanese Mountain Guide Association. I’m the only one on the island. I have reached the summit of Rishiri more than 500 times… It’s my great pleasure to guide here and let people from all around the world discover this beautiful island all year round. Please feel free to get in touch with me if you are looking for a local expert to guide you in Rishiri. Besides mountain guiding, I'm managing a family hostel here so I can help you with the accommodation as well.
