After a lot of peddling I was getting close to the northeastern tip of Rebun. Rishiri Island was disappearing behind the landscape and I had to fight against a cool northern wind that was slowing me down.
Several minutes later I arrived at Cape Kanedano. From there I could see across the bay to Cape Sukoton, which would be my next major destination of the day. I made use of the public restroom at the cape and I also ran into the tour group that I had seen the previous day in Wakkanai. An elderly woman from the tour group seemed to be impressed that I had bicycled all the way from the ferry port up to the cape. There were still many more hours to go on my ride around Rebun Island but I had come a long way to get to Cape Kanedano and I was feeling good about my progress that day.
