Shiretoko Peninsula is located at the NE tip of the Japanese island of Hokkaido, facing on the NW side the Sea of Okhotsk, and on the E side Nemuro Strait. Twenty-five kilometres across the strait is Kunashiri Island of Russia. (Kunashiri is the southernmost of the Kuril Islands, a volcanic chain.) The peninsula may be the last remaining unexplored region of Japan, and has been declared a national park and national marine park. The region is globally important for threatened sea birds and migratory birds, a number of salmonid species, and for a number of marine mammals, including the Steller’s sea lion, and some cetacean species.

Shiretoko refers to ‘The End of the Earth’. Notably, this is the southernmost point where sea ice usually forms in the Northern Hemisphere. The peninsula is 70 kilometres long and 25 kilometres wide at its base. From Shiretoko Cape at the tip of the peninsula, a series of volcanoes run down the peninsula, including Mount Shiretoko (1225m), Shiretoko-Iwo-zan (1563m), and Mount Unabetsu (1419m) The highest peak is Mount Rausu (1660m). It is part of the Chishima volcanic and earthquake zone. The cold Oyashiro Current from the Arctic flows south alongside the peninsula.

In a scenic sail by, the peninsula appears as a series of steep volcanic peaks covered with virgin forests, and in parts a low coastal strip partly covered with conifers. You may see cormorants and white-tailed eagles. Many waterfalls can be seen from boats: the Kamuiwakkayu hot Falls that give off steam; Furepe waterfall, know for its beauty as "maiden's tears"; and Oshinkoshin waterfall, which flows alongside a road and drops magnificently towards the sea. Whale watching is a popular attraction. Thirteen or fourteen species of cetaceans have been recorded in the area.
