The Nemuro Peninsula (根室半島 Nemuro-hantō) is a peninsula which extends from the east coast of Hokkaidō, Japan. It is some 30 km long and 8 km, and forms part of Nemuro City. Cape Nosappu at its tip is the easternmost point of Hokkaidō. The northern coastline is on Nemuro Bay, while the south faces the Pacific Ocean. Islands of the Habomai (Khabomai) Archipelago, administered by Russia but claimed by Japan, extend eastward from the peninsula.
