Tsugaru Channel that lies 19.5 km between Honshu and Hokkaido in northern Japan where winds, eddies and the Tsugaru Current are typically strong. Photo by Dr. Steven Minaglia shows Tappi Misaki on Honshu in the foreground and Shirakami Misaki on Hokkaido in the background. The Seikan Tunnel runs underneath the channel and is an excellent course for an optimal channel crossing.
