Today, I set off for Rishiri Island. It's a small island off the coast of Wakkanai.
Original plan was to bike around the island which would take roughly 8 hours. But realizing the weather wasn't too great for scenery-viewing, I've shorten my trip just to following the cycling road.

The mountain that's most famously known as the mountain you see on Shiroi no Koibito chocolates. (search it up)

But you can't see it. coz of the fog. Just barely...

What a day to be biking. After waking up at 3:44 to see the sunrise, then went back to sleep just to wake up 6 to board the ferry. Planned to sleeping on the ferry. But old people have a lot to talk about. Especially if you're a foreigner... Aka, no sleep.

But hey, a good bowl of ramen always delays exhaustion :D
Rishiri Ramen! It's miso ramen with scallops, mussels, shrimp, konbu seaweed, fish flakes, and some good cha siu.
