I visited Shiretoko in July.
Shiretoko is a peninsula where many wild animals still live there and called last frontier of Japan.
I felt a power of nature there and I am sure I come back Shiretoko soon because Shiretoko is beautiful all seasons.
I especially want to come back in Autumn.

After enjoyed Peninsula cruise I went to 5 lakes of Shiretoko.
At this place you have a chance to see wild bears.
I took walking trail and went to 1st lake this time because I was in the group tour and was little short of time to see all of lakes.
Because if you want to see all 5 lakes you have to have lecture of rangers how to deal with wild bears when coming across.
Then, you talk a foot pass to see all lakes.
I will try next time.
