Shiretoko National Park (知床国立公園) covers most of the Shiretoko Peninsula at the northeastern tip of
the island of Hokkaido. The word 'Shiretoko' is derived from an Ainu word "sir etok," meaning the place
where the earth protrudes. One of the remotest regions in Japan, much of the peninsula is only accessible
on foot or by boat. Shiretoko is best known as the home of Japan's largest brown bear population and for
offering views of Kunashiri Island. The park has a hot springs waterfall called Kamuiwakka Falls カムイワッカの滝
Kamuiwakka-no-taki, means "water of the gods" in Ainu.

An extensive board walk throughout the land covered by a bamboo grass.

by Russia after 1945.


There is no permission is needed to enter the board walk. It makes easy to enter the place to the sightseeing spots,
even by a wheel chair; however, the question remains is it really necessary to set an electric hedge, and invade the
natural bear country?
