"Wild seals in the winter habor." Wakkanai by MAIGO

Wakkanai Travel Guide: 13 reviews and 29 photos

In Bakkai fishing harbor, there is a lots of wild saeals
(over 200) living winter season.
They called harbor seal,
Japanese said GOMAFU (spotted like sesami grain) AZARASHI (seal)
BUT! I call them GOMA-CYANZU!! without permission......

During severe winter, a lots of wild seals gther at the harbor.
They are completely excellent tourist attractions now.

In fact, they are hangers-on for local fishermen, but
they made a lighter for seals in a harbor.

GOMA-CYANZU(Seals), they are taking a nap on a
lighter peacefully......zzzzz......

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Lovely Wild Creaturs
  • Cons:very cold in winter......
  • In a nutshell:They are the GOMA-CYANZU !

    Thanks for looking at my Atlanta page. :-) I need to do LOTS of work to it! It is almost embarrassing that mine is a top 5 page for a city of this size!
