Explore Around the Shakotan Peninsula from a Glass-Bottomed Boat

The Shakotan Peninsula, not far from Otaru City, is famous for its brilliant blue waters, as well as its rugged coastline of natural rock formations and heathery headlands. There are some excellent coastal paths from which you can appreciate the peninsula in all its glory. The waters surrounding the peninsula abound in wildlife, and from the “New Shakotan” glass-bottomed boat, you can get a glimpse of the creatures that live beneath the surface while gliding past towering rock formations. The boat leaves from Bikuni Port, just an hour’s drive from Otaru, making it perfect for a day trip.
