SHIRETOKO NEMURO AREA

A region that faces the Northern Territories and Kunashir Island across the Nemuro Channel. Since long ago, our ancestors have lived their lives in this land in search of a wealth of fishing resources offered by the unique geographical features of the channel.

They formed their original culture that coexists with nature, which displays its toughness at times, and kept nature in a brilliant state that is unprecedented.

This region, which was created through a combination of the rich conditions as intended by nature and the life and industry that humans have built up, offers scenery that looks as if you have visited a foreign country, despite being located in Japan.
