Maiden’s Tears: Furepe Waterfall in Shiretoko

One of the famous sights to see when you are in Shiretoko is the Furepe waterfall, a rare waterfall with no flowing river. The scenery around here which overlooks the Sea of Okhotsk is spectacular and is accessible via a short walking trail, or can be seen from sightseeing boats.

Panoramic View of Lake Kussharo from Bihoro Pass

I stopped by the observatory / road station at Bihoro Pass, known for its panoramic view of Lake Kussharo. Lucked with clear weather, the view from the observatory also extends to Iozan, the Wakoto Peninsula and the Shiretoko Mountain Range.
