Park · Nature / Park
Wakkanai Park (稚内公園, Wakkani Kōen) was established in Wakkanai, Hokkaidō, Japan in 1961. Covering some 45 hectares (110 acres), when combined with the adjacent Forest Park, there is total area of approximately 100 hectares (250 acres) for "citizens to relax". Located on a hillside overlooking the Sōya Straits, within the park there are a number of memorials that, along with those of Cape Sōya, that to the Chihaku ferry near the North Breakwater Dome, the Northern Memorial Museum inside the park, and the Wakkanai Karafuto Museum, together help give Wakkanai the greatest density of "proxy" Karafuto lieux de mémoire in Hokkaidō.

  • This is a very nice park located on a hill in the center of the station area. Although it is nearby, it is a bit of a hike up the side of the hill to the park. There is no public transportation to this area. There is a monument to the women of the telephone company who stayed at their posts while Russian troops invaded sakhalin Island at the end of World War II.
