Highlights

 
     
    I invite you to a beautiful trekking in the highest mountain of the Shiretoko peninsula, in eastern Hokkaido.

    Mount Rausu (1660 m) is the highest point on the peninsula of Shiretoko. Lying inside a wonderful and unspoiled National Park, this place is ideal for seeing how the habitat changes from a forest to a Dwarf Siberian pine (Pinus pumila) area and then a flower blossom field.

    There’s not much altitude difference here, but we will see a large diversity of ecosystems. Besides, it is possible to see some islands that both Japan and Russia claim as their own territories.

    For those who love trekking and wild nature, this tour will be a great opportunity to enjoy the Shiretoko Area in the summer time. So please contact me if you want to join me for this 1-day traverse!

    Amazing experience. Took 5hrs to summit. Cloudy and little wind made it easier. Skies opened up 100M from the top. We summited and then we skied fresh powder into the crater. Well worth it.

    We had an excellent time hiking up to the summit of Mt Kurodake. Jun gave us a good intro to the flora and fauna on the way up and regaled us with stories all the way up. He set a pace suitable for us and ensured our safety throughout. Jun comes highly recommended!
