Explore the beautiful scenery and lakes of Shiretoko Goko. Two well-maintained pathways connect the area's five lakes together. The first is an elevated wooden walkway, leading to the lake with a picturesque mountainous backdrop and a view of the Sea of Okhtosk. The rest of the lakes are connected via a ground pathway, which should be explored with a guide due to the presence of bears in the area.
