Shiretoko Kokuritsu-koen (National Park) Rausu Visitors Center

Hokkaido

Shiretoko National Park, in which the Rausu Visitors Center is situated, is on Shiretoko-hanto Peninsula in the northeastern corner of Japan. Shiretoko-hanto Peninsula is only 16 km wide near Rausu, with a range of mountains formed by past volcanic activity running through the center. Due to its harsh topography and climate, a large part of the peninsula remains accessible only by sea. The area is covered in primeval forest, and in a move to preserve this precious natural environment, 50% of the region has been designated a special preservation district, with permission required for access. The Rausu Visitors Center provides easy-to-understand information on five aspects of this remote peninsula - its topography, primeval forest, flora, fauna and natural environment.
