Hokkaido Sights

Shiretoko Goko (Shiretoko Five Lakes)

Fodor's Review

A stop for every tour bus route in the region, this collection of small lakes sits on a forested precipice above the ocean. It takes just over an hour to walk around all five lakes on boardwalk paths, and there are some newer boardwalks for the city slickers who don't want to get their shoes dusty. The lakes are lovely reflecting pools for the mountains, but crowds do disturb the idyll a bit. Luckily, most tour groups only circle the first two lakes. Park at the Nature

Center, and get bus tickets for the 20-minute drive Shiretoko Goko and beyond.
