  •  The core part of the Shiretoko nature no people. No realistic views from the sea.  I say not only cruise overview part here and a world heritage site. Higher than ships, boarded their boats, but for small boats zippy and slightly shorter, there is little sense of no, so this is recommended.  Guiding staff. Is said to be better today because it worsens the weather wisdom floor arrived, immediately consulted the cruise company is the next condition is bad, if you want to change on the eve of the day of your appointment, embarked. But in the meantime, the worst thought heavy rain eventually stopped rain on the way hears in overcast, visibility, bear it encountered firm.  Kunashiri Island firm looked at the Cape. Since the day was sunny, but high waves, had been canceled series.  I realized also joining this cruise because of a natural, much depends on luck. We recommend that when you go to still go to the Cape.
