Every year between late January and late March, visitors can experience walking on the drift ice in Utoro, on the west side of the Shiretoko Peninsula. Walkers will be given a dry suit that covers shoes as well, so that if you do get into the sea water, your body will not get wet or cold. This way the drift ice in its natural glory can be seen up close.

Eagle Watching

If you are interested in diving deeper into the Shiretoko experience, we recommend eagle-watching, an activity that Japanese are recently really into! You must come to Shiretoko if you want to see the White-tailed sea eagles that migrate from Siberia to rest on the drift ice during the winter!

Waking Along The Shiretoko Five Lakes
