“Winter Wonderland”
Review of Shiretoko Pass

Reviewed 1 August 2018

What can you say about the Shiretoko Pass that will do it justice. Wild, windy but wonderful. We drove over the pass in a blizzard. Snow blowing horizontal across the road, visibility almost non existant, but yet tremendous in a wild and wonderful way. A drive that should only be tried by the brave, or foolhardy. Whichever you are what a marvelous experience.

The drive up to the Pass was foggy. The mountain covered with snow. At the observation point, it was very cold and windy. Unable to see good view of all the beautiful forests and mountains on this day..so check the weather if you are going up to the Pass..and bring winter clothes even in early June.

You will need a car to get access to Shiretoko Pass. The view on the drive up the winding roads up the mountain is really something to behold and breathtaking. And once you reach Shiretoko Pass, you get an awesome view of full mountain ranges and views of the Sea of Japan - on a clear day!
