SpotShiretoko-go-ko (Five lakes in Shiretoko)

These are five small, mysterious lakes surrounded by primeval forests. They have no rivers that flow in or flow out. It is said that water springs from the bottom of the lakes and leaks out of the bluffs of the peninsula via rocks in the bottom of the lakes. It takes about one hour to walk through a 2.8-km trail around the five lakes. Yezo-shika deer might be seen quite close at hand. You should keep in mind that the area around the lakes is a bear habitat. As a bear sometimes appears, you should avoid walking alone.
