  • Depending on the road that crosses the Utoro in the west and Rausu Shiretoko Peninsula in shiretoko pass, it is necessary to be careful because it becomes a traffic of the winter stop time limit, and it is necessary to run anyway and the road is pleasant anyway and the scenery is wonderful from Utoro to the pass, and it is not far across the sea when crossing. I was impressed that I saw Kunigo Island.

  • The road is beautiful, and the stop at the pass allows you to see the famous Kuril Islands, the first of which is a bone of contention between Russia and Japan. They are of strategic interest not only by their geographical position, but above all by the access to the underwater wealth (gas, oil, etc.) that they offer to the owner country. It seems that after the Second World War, the US wanting to keep Okinawa as long as possible, let Russia get its hands on the Kuril Islands. Situation blocked at the moment.
