In this winter, A new activity “Ryuhyou-yoku” is born in Shiretoko!
Go to see the drift ice field surrounded
by nature and have a relaxing time
The miracle ice, Ryuhyo - comes from far away.
The drift ice comes 600 miles away from Russian sea,
which is made in the ocean of north east Sakhalin.
In winter, a large mount of water
in Amur river flows down into the sea,
and it makes floating ice on the salty sea.
The mass of ice is carried,
growing larger, to Shiretoko through
Okhotsk Sea by the chilly north wind.
