Shiretoko Pass


Rte 334, where it traverses the Shiretoko Pass, is considered one of Japan's most scenic stretches of road. It winds about 30km through the foothills of Rausu-dake between Utoro and Rausu, passing groves of Erman's birch and Japanese stone pines. There's a lookout point at 740m with parking. The road closes from November to April.
