  • The park area is located at the northeastern tip of Japan, including the surrounding waters from the central part of the Shiretoko Peninsula to Cape Shiretoko. A good facility to learn that "special protected areas" with strict protection regulations occupy more than half of the land park area.

  • We have already made several national parks in Hokkaido and this is the best place (if not the only one at the moment) which, while giving information about the park, fauna and flora, raises awareness of the public by explaining the good behaviors to adopt in a nature park. It's well done, also accessible for children and it takes little time (about 45 minutes, including film). This is an essential stop, to make at the beginning of the stay in the area!
