野付半島 / Notsuke Peninsula


Notsuke Peninsula is a long sand spit, and is actually the biggest in Japan, at 28 kilometers in length. The bottom part of the peninsula belongs to Shibetsu Town, but the majority of it falls under Betsukai Town. Both the peninsula and the gulf are registered under the Ramsar Convention to protect nature. Recently, because of global climate change, a lot of sand has disappeared from the spit. Sometimes the sea waves reach the road on the narrow land, which is the only way to reach the tip. Some academic parties warn that the peninsula may be cut off by rising sea levels and form an island.
