Situated in the northern part of Abashiri, the cliffs of Notoro Cape start at the mouth of Lake Abashiri and protrudes toward the Sea of Okhotsk. A lighthouse stands at the tip of the cape. Every year between end-January to mid-March, the massive Sea of Okhotsk is covered by an impressive patch of drift ice. From May to October, you will be able to catch the cattle and horses from the nearby Misaki Ranch grazing in the fields.
