Live Web Cam
We have a few web cameras but we are always looking for more, so if you know of any please let us know.
Muroran Light House
This camera is on top of the local light house and gives nice views out over the ocean , if you can see the lines using this then the local beaches will be pumping.
Hakodate Mt View
This is not really a Surf Check cam but you can see the ocean , but more importantly you can see a absolutely stunning view of this part of the Hokkaido coastline and this fantastic city.
Even at night time the camera gives Disney style Twinkling pictures. Enjoy.
There a 100s of bloggers in Hokkaido but not to many that do daily photo uploads below is a pick of the best that we know of.

General Break Information
This beach has a large population so the waves here can get busy, its has tetra pod setup like many of the other beaches in Honshu so it has that feeling of safety, very easy to get a cheap room for a night here in one of the many local hotels, a few wild bars to go to in the evening as well so we have heard.
