Best World Heritage Sites In Hokkaido [1-3]


Shiretoko Rausu Port


Winter Wild Animals In Shiretoko, A World Natural Heritage Site

The drift ice arrives at Shiretoko registered as a world heritage site. Some wild animals such as Steller's sea eagle get together to get food. There's a boat to see such creatures from Rausu Port in early morning, and you can enjoy watching them very close!◎Car is convenient here. It's better to come to Rausu the day before and stay at night, then leave for Rausu Port in early morning. The drift ice starts to arrive from the end of February. As soon as the drift ice arrives, you can watch Steller's sea eagle and others like that, but after a while, you can see sea lions. By the way, these eagles get together for the fish thrown from this tour boat, so you have a great chance to watch them.
