JR Kitahama Station is an unmanned train station in the South-Eastern of Abashiri city. This tiny little station consists of a waiting room and a café called Café Teishaba, and its only 50m away from the Sea of Okhotsk in Japan (making it the closest station to the Sea of Okhotsk in Japan). During winter season, the sea is covered with drift ice and Kitahama Station is the only object can be seen from a distance. This is where we can feel the power of mother nature.
