SHIRETOKO! SUSTAINABLE Sea, Forests, People
Shiretoko is a land of miracles. The cycle of life begins with drift ice. The 70km-long Shiretoko Peninsula is lined with 1,500m-class mountains in the center, and is enriched with diverse nature from the sea to the mountains.
Northern half of the peninsula is National Park, and you can enjoy special experiences such as forest walking, mountain climbing, cycling, sightseeing boat and encountering wildlife. The gate town of the national park is also a fishing town, so seafood, hot springs and various accommodation facilities is available.
In 2005, Shiretoko was registered as a World Natural Heritage Site in recognition of the ecosystem and the nature conservation efforts that preserve it.
