Shinretoko Pininsula is a peninsula in northeastern Hokkaido. It was listed as a World Heritage Site in 2005.

Abashiri
Shiretoko is a peninsula in the northeast corner of Hokkaido, which is listed as a world natural heritage site by UNESCO. In summer, you can go out to sea to watch whales, and in winter, you can walk in the snow or on the drift ice. It's a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts and is very suitable for a 2-3 days trip. Getting to Shiretoko’s is not very convenient. You can only take the JR from Kushiro or Abashiri to get there, which takes 3 hours and 1 hour respectively.

Meilu is a location of the film "If You Are the One", "" is the meaning of Yamaguchi. From the Meijing Observatory, you can see the entire Kussharo Lake and the Akan Mountains. The lake in Kussharo is very clear and clean, showing a crystal clear blue, which is amazing. Maybe you can't think of it, Lake Kussha is already 30,000 years old, although it is a bunch of Bohai Sea compared with the age of the earth. But compared with the long history of human history, he has accompanied the humans without knowing how many dynasties have gone. At this moment, I can understand the feelings of Professor You from the Stars. The world has been changing. He has been watching the sly. Extremely thick snow, said to be the result of three consecutive days of heavy snow. At the highest point of the hillside, there is the station "Grutto Panorama", which is the best place to watch the sunset of Lake Kussharo. In fact, the sun is falling behind the mountains, you can't see the sun itself, but on a sunny day, the whole sky will turn pink or even deep red. The winter wind was so cold that I stayed at the top of the beautiful place for a little while, my tears couldnt help but flow down, and my cheeks were frozen and I only went to instinct. Returning to the second floor lounge to warm up, I will climb up the gentle slope again after watching the time. During this period, there is no other person in the whole beauty. On the hillside, only me and the driver who accompanied me, Nanyun, the world around it is very quiet, only the distant whistling The sound of the wind. has gone through all the hardships and boarded this mountain, just to see the most beautiful lake in the Northland shine in the sunset.

The British novelist, Maugham once wrote, "I travel because I like to walk around, I enjoy the freedom of travel, I am happy to get rid of jealousy, responsibility and obligation; I met some strange people, they gave me a moment of joy, Sometimes I write a subject for me; I often get bored with myself, thinking that I can enrich my personality with travel, and I can make a slight difference. I will travel and I will not return to me when I return. " Maom's words enriched me in travel The feelings on the way also showed my expectations for non-travel life. In the busy working life, the ordinary days of two points and one line, the comfort is to remember the little bit of the journey. The scenery at that time, the mood of that time, like a treasure, sparkled in my life. The trip to Akan National Park is far from over. Nanyun's car drove us to the beautiful side of the west side of Lake Kussharo before sunset. Mei is a location of the film "If You Are the One", "" is the meaning of Yamaguchi. From the Meijing Observatory, you can see the entire Kussharo Lake and the Akan Mountains. The lake in Kussharo is very clear and clean, showing a crystal clear blue, which is amazing.

But compared with the long history of human history, he has accompanied the humans without knowing how many dynasties have gone. At this moment, I can understand the feelings of Professor You from the Stars. The world has been changing. He has been watching the sly. Drive through the woods and ski trails to the viewing heights, where you can take the best view of Lake Kussharo. However, I seem to be completely attracted by the sunset on the right. Backlighting is so beautiful, once suspected that people are in Northern Europe. It seems to be blessed by the Nordic Snow God, whether it is a stone or a tree or a roof, it is full of charm. At the highest point of the hillside, there is the station "Grutto Panorama", which is the best place to watch the sunset of Lake Kussharo. In fact, the sun is falling behind the mountains, you can't see the sun itself, but on a sunny day, the whole sky will turn pink or even deep red.

Raiders: 1, there is a gift shop and a simple snack shop in the beautiful area of Qulu Road, and the second floor is a spacious lounge with a view of the window through the glass. 2, The "Xumao Tea" made with the bear cubs grown here (the mountain white bamboo) is very delicious, and the "Bear Omelette Ice Cream" that is added to the bear clam leaves is a specialty here. 3. In the winter blizzard, the road leading to the United States will be banned.
