  • When you get off in the parking lot and through a small tunnel, you will find a beautiful sea that is crystal clear. Speaking of Shakotan Blue, it is a wonderful view that you may say this sea. On the right hand side, i am impressed by the mountain of sulfur soil like after the eruption, and the appearance of the sea which seems to be a continuous accumulation of the strange rock when i look to the left. It arrives at the coast when going down about 100 meters in height on a steep wooden stairs, but it is hard to return when riding in the condition because the slope is steep (laughs).

  • Go up the parking lot and through the tunnel and you'll see a great view. It is the coast where i enjoyed swimming and camping in old times. You can go down to the coast, but it's pretty hard. There is a small lighthouse when going up the slope which is not a tunnel. The trekking course seemed to be in place, and I saw people carrying backpacks.
