Shiretoko Misaki, Shari-cho

4.6
Take a two-hour boat trip in the ultimate natural sanctuary at UNESCO-protected Shiretoko Misaki, a cape tipping the pristine Shiretoko National Park. Keep an eye out for bears and their cubs as your boat approaches the island, which spreads across 386 sq km (149 sq mi). You can also observe eagles, deer, foxes, and owls, as well as a waterfall dropping into the Sea of Okhotsk from rugged, steep cliffs. Look out over the water to spot dolphins, sea lions, whales, and sea birds on the boat ride. Sightseeing boats operate from mid-April to mid-November along this dramatic coastline. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Shiretoko Misaki by using our Shari-cho family vacation planner.

    You will not find this kind of nature anywhere else in Japan. Very beautiful and unique. You can even see Russian territory from the boat when you reach this place.  more »

    Wisdom floor Cape route go to the tip of Cape Shiretoko sightseeing ship Aurora with the morning 10 o'clock one day 1 flights. Is heard and can be canceled by the tidal wave, wave is still in fine, I was lucky. From past the waterfall of kamuiwakka mount Shiretoko is greatly rising, past a waterfall to the tip of the Cape a little more. Show the tip of the lighthouse and the Cape cheers is ready.
