Cape Soya is 1,000km from Tokyo at Japan's most northern point. In the height of winter we drive across a snowy Hokkaido to discover what's up there.

  • NOTIFICATION SQUAD: To miss the Natsuki cameo in this video would be a crime! Well folks, you can't beat a good road trip and this was easily one of the most fun videos I've produced in 9 years. A HUGE thanks to my best American friend PETE for coming along for the ride (even if his motives were questionable). You can find him over on Twitch where he streams most nights (🌟www.twitch.tv/premiertwo ) and I look forward to stopping by and doing some shows with him in a few weeks to celebrate surviving our journey.

    • Chris I'm a week late to this vid (sorry) but can I just say that the two of you channeled the spirits of Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau perfectly. Or hell, even Tony Randall and Jack Klugman. I have just watched a 21st century remake of The Odd Couple. Thanks mate.

  • According to latitude readings that I have taken from Google Maps , the northernmost point of the disputed Kuril island of Iturup is clearly further north than Cape Soya. Japan still claims ownership of four disputed Kuril Islands. One of our TV networks here in Australia rebroadcasts NHK news bulletins, and I notice that outline maps of Japan shown during the weather report pointedly include the four disputed Kuril Islands, including Iturup. In "officially" marking Cape Soya as the northernmost point of Japan, Japan appears to be conceding Iturup as not part of Japan - a concession that Russia will welcome.
