Roadside Station Shiretoko Rausu

道の駅 知床・らうす

Directly in front of Shiretoko Rausu Rest Area is Nemuro Strait, and behind is Mt. Rausu, one of Japan’s top 100 mountains. The rest area is the closest rest area to Kunashiri Island of the Northern Territories and is so close you can see the island’s trees on a clear day. The rest house is located at the entrance to the Shiretoko-Odan Road on the Rausu side, on Route 335. It’s close to one of the best whale and bird watching points in Japan and from here you can check departure and latest information on the bulletin boards at the tourist information office. There are places to eat where you can try some fish from Rausu and of course you can purchase different kinds of sea related products too.
