Shiretoko | Nature


Shiretoko peninsula is covered by rich primeval forest. The ground never appears to flatten as the shape of the land fluctuates all the way from the coast to up into the mountains, creating a diverse landscape for various plants to grow. The forests largely consist of mixed ever-green and deciduous hardwood, including species such as Sakhalin fir and Mongolian oak. These abundant and varied forests create the perfect habitat for many kinds of creatures.
