Characteristics of Nemuro Footpaths

Walking on the Nemuro footpaths is almost like taking a trip to a country outside Japan, with the scenery often being compared to footpaths in the United Kingdom and Europe.  The footpaths lead you further on a journey through time, showing you artifacts and remains from the days of the area's pioneers.  Visitors may encounter rare animals such as Yezo deer, Japanese cranes, and red squirrels, and the footpaths boast spectacular views of the ocean.  Don't miss the chance to learn about dairy farming and sample some delicious soft served ice cream made locally.  Whatever you choose to do, the Nemuro footpaths are sure to leave you with unforgettable memories.

Attoko Route

Hattaushi Route

Bettoga Route

Rules for Footpaths

  • Brown bears live in the area, so be sure to carry a bell to keep the bears away. Choose a bell that jingles loudly, and wear it in a place where it will continuously sway and jingle.
  • Walk on the designated footpath.
  • Take any trash back with you.
  • Show respect for wild animals and plants.
  • Take care not to scare farm animals or damage crops, and be sure to close any gates you use.
  • Refrain from any irresponsible uses of fire that may start accidental fires.
  • Be very careful of weather changes.
