Highlights

 
     
    This is a unique trekking experience in Hokkaido! A 3-day traverse along the coast line of Shiretoko Cape, surrounded by amazing wild life.

    During this trip on the Shiretoko peninsula, you will have the opportunity of seeing local fishermen harvesting the famous Rausu Konbu (kelp). This seaweed is known as the best Konbu for preparing the essential “Dashi (broth)”, one of the critical ingredients of Japanese cuisine.

    Furthermore, there’s a high chance of encountering fauna like wild bears and white-tailed sea eagles.

    I believe this trekking is great for those looking for wild experiences in Japan, spending the nights in a tent and enjoying a beautiful scenery.

    Please contact me if you want to join me for this 3-day adventure in the easternmost of Hokkaido. I will be glad to take you there!

    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!
