We woke refreshed after a good sleep at the campground near Funadomari at the north of Rebun Island, off the northwest coast of Hokkaido, Japan. That said, sleep in a tent is not as refreshing as sleep in a real bed, and our groggy states as we hiked up the small hill behind the campground were testament to that fact.

as did a refreshing swim in Funadomari Bay; water as clear as I’ve ever seen in Japan, and not at all too chilly.

All in all, Rishiri and Rebun Islands were definitely worth the effort. If we’d had more time, we would have spent a little more time on Rebun Island; the cliffs to the west of the island are apparently worth the travel on gravel roads over to the western side.
