Amazing views! A hidden gem in Rebun Island, the shell beach

I will introduce a hidden gem in Rebun Island! It is a beach filled with shells, located in Funadomari Village at the northern part of the island. The beach was truly filled with shells like carpet, and the view was astonishing. Enjoy together with the view of the Sea of Japan in the northernmost part of the island!


Approximately 30 minutes drive from Kafuka Port Ferry Terminal on Hokkaido Prefectural Road No. 40. Turn left and take Hokkaido Prefectural Road No, 507. Park your car at the parking of Rebuncho Sogo Koen Park. Walk along the beach then find an animal trail to go down to the beach. There, you will find the shell beach!

It was hard to notice in the distance, but when I got closer…


Shells, shells, shells, and shells everywhere! A tremendous amount of shells washed ashore are piled up here! 

When I looked around, I noticed shells in far ahead. I am not sure how much exact distance would be, but maybe it continues one or two kilometers. 

My cameraman and I were so surprised to see the view, and we screamed each; “Woooooo” or “Waaaah!”

When I took a look carefully, I noticed all of them have different colors and prints. 


Doesn’t look them like art when they are buried in the sand?  


I found lots of shells with holes and searching for it was quite fun. You can use them as accessory parts!

​The beach is located in the northernmost part of the island, and the view is open. Stop by the beach if you are going to northern sights in Rebun Island such as Sukoton Misaki Cape or Kanedano Misaki Cape.
