  • I participated in a cruise of Cape Shiretoko on the one-day Oorra. A telescope that can be rented on board is essential. You can clearly see when the bear is lucky enough to come out. Because the cruise ship stops near the cape, I experience it near the northern territory and the lighthouse in the hand.

  • We took a Shiretoko sightseeing boat to Cape Shiretoko. Although the operation was threatened by the bad weather, I was able to go on a place to go, and while looking at the waterfalls of strange rocks, frepe, and Kamuiwakka, I was impressed to encounter brown bears. Finally, we reached the end of Shiretoko Peninsula. Beyond Cape Shiretoko is a little lonely, Kunigo Island.
