Rausu and Utoro


It seems we are listing Shiretoko NP, Rausu, and Utoro all here. Is that desirable? If so, should it be noted? --(WT-en) Orcrist 02:31, 28 July 2011 (EDT)

Personal anecdote


The follow was added about the Shiretoko-Iwaobetsu Youth Hostel on the article page by User:

If u want a budget trip its not exactly cheap compared to the nicer hotels around the area which is only an extra 1000 to 1500 yen more per night.For two person during a night stay,we paid 15700 yen excluding rental of towels costing us 200 yen per piece. If u compare the food,the ambience and the overall experience staying there,all i can tell u is dont ever try its the worst experence one'd ever had. For starters the toilet is shared and has the most foul smell One'd ever encountered.Even the thought of going to the toilet makes one want to puke for days.The bathroom only can only be used from 4pm to 10pm and yet u are paying quite an expensive rate for a hostel accomodation when U cant even maintain ur own personal hygiene.Dinner is not worth the 3000 yen that we paid for it with some cheap vegetables,and cheap meat and burnt fis(One fish shared by two person) served to us. The only most expensive dish was the crab which had to be shared between 6 people. In my opinion its the smallest crab that i have ever seen in Hokkaido. Lastly it felt like i was are in prison where i had to clear the plates my self after paying such a high price for such simple, cheap looking and bad tasting meal! During the night,be prepared for the invasion of bedbugs in your sleeping mattress. If u feel that u have too much blood in ur body and feel like donating some blood do a good deed and go to the hospital instead of giving it away for free to those sick bed bugs!

It seems like things have changed. When I stayed there in 1977 it was very nice.Billposer (talk) 09:27, 2 February 2022 (UTC)Reply



There is no need to return to retrace your steps on Mt. Rausu. I started from the Iwaobetsu side and descended to Rausu. It seems that few people do this. Of the people who went up when I was there, I was the only one who crossed to Rausu.Billposer (talk) 09:27, 2 February 2022 (UTC)Reply
