Shiretoko Goko Field House Reviews
Very nice walking trails with fresh air and gorgeous natural sceneries. You can visit the place almost all year round except winter. The tracks are well kept. The staff were really helpful in explaining the procedure. The food at the visiting center are normal.
The park opened again on 20 April which was just in time for us to visit while we were in Shiretoko. It was beautiful, absolutely worth visiting. The long route was closed due to snow, but the short route and elevated walkway were open. The elevated walkway is free, if you want to do the ground route you pay a small fee and attend a lecture on how to avoid encounters with bears. The short route takes you past two of the five lakes. Even without the long route, you get a great view and it's still worth the visit. The ground routes join the elevated walkway at the end. The walkway is great for views and is accessible so if you have any issues with mobility it's a great option. If the weather isn't great or is snowy you can rent rubber boots from the Shiretoko Natural Centre for 500yen. We found it really helpful to check @shiretoko_goko on Twitter as they gave more regular updates on the status of routes and the weather conditions. Just popped the tweets into Google translate! Do check in advance if you are travelling over winter (which includes up to the end of April) as the park isn't open all year round. The frozen lakes did look amazing though!
