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.

A paradise for
wild birds
a wild kingdom

"Steller's sea eagle and the white-tailed eagle bravely fly through the wide open sky.
You can only see them from this close in the Shiretoko Nemuro area. Nothing beats the cuteness of the Yezo sika deer, as it pokes its face out of the grass in the Notsuke Peninsula."

Hokkaido's vaunted
vast milkshed

The scale of dairy farming in the Shiretoko Nemuro area is exceptional even in Hokkaido. Cattle are left to roam freely, while windbreak forests spread in a grid pattern as you look out the window of a plane. Exquisite is the only adjective that suits the milk, cheese, and soft serve ice cream.
