Description

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!

We had a brilliant couple of days with Jun. At a difficult time in not the best season for Hokkaido, Jun was able to sniff out unexpected powder stashes and we skied some great snow! Really nice guy as well!

Jun is an outstanding guide, a true expert in his field. He was attentive to our needs and desires and very ably provided us with a fantastic experience skiing in the Asahikawa area backcountry. I will book other trips with him and highly recommend him to others!

Jun did an incredible job guiding us through Daisetsuzan National Park. He was attentive, friendly and courteous. His knowledge of the local flora, fauna, and landscape was superb (that rock garden in particular left a deep impression on me). His cooking was superb. And, we felt like we experienced aspects of the Japanese outdoors and culture that are very hard to reach. Andy and I had a phenomenal time.

Jun was a very safe and knowledgeable guide for our one day skiing trip for Yotei. He knew lots about the snowpack and the local wildlife and trees. We felt safe the entire time and really appreciated the pace he went at. Would recommend!
