Hiking in Hokkaido・北海道: Shiretoko Goko・知床五湖 Edition

Southern Japan is predictably hot right now so for vacation a friend and I escaped to the north, Shiretoko in Hokkaido, almost as far north as you can get. The first day was spent pretty relaxed going around the 5 lakes, walked around the peninsula and got bear training for future hikes.

The mountains off in the distance are some that we will climb later in the week. It’s so beautiful here and definitely cooler and quieter than back home.

Back closer to where we are staying there are great sunset views, perfect for dinners and beers on the beach.
