SpotShiretoko Fantasia

A magnificent aurora shimmers in the night sky of Shiretoko. A huge aurora appeared in Shiretoko in 1957. Locals tried somehow to reproduce this aurora. After a process of trial and error, they succeeded in producing a dynamic and fantastic aurora, making a screen with smoke from burning straw in the night sky and projecting laser beams onto it. The Fantasia from early February to early March features various types of events and a photo contest, as well as display of drift ice.
