Shakotan is a place worth visiting west of Hokkaido, just a 2hr drive from Sapporo. We rented a car and it was a comfortable drive passing by Otaru.
The views are breathtaking with some nice seafood as the attraction, uni (sea urchin) is a specialty in the area.
After all the sightseeing and walking you can have a dip in many of the onsens around with a sunset view, which is what this area is known for.
Enjoy the pics
