Kayak trip to Hokkaido June to August 2004

This way around

I paddled solo around Hokkaido, the northern island of Japan. My route was clockwise: Bikuni, Wakkanai, Shiretoko, Kushiro, Erimo, Tomakomai, Tsugaru-kaikyo, and back to Bikuni, a total distance of almost exactly 2000 Km. I started at Bikuni on Monday 28 June and finished on 9 August. See explanation in Japanese.

Detailed write-up to follow (maybe!)

English sites for Japan conditions: notices for mariners, wave height and wind direction, tides, weather (in Japanese, Satana region), Japanese nautical publications, Japanese maps.
