We dropped by a cove along the seaside road facing Okhotsk Ocean. The ocean was so calm and ebb tide exposed the seabed near the beach.
Hokkaido wild lilies were blooming on the cliff of Cape Notori. The orange color was so vivid with the dark green stone pine and bamboo grasses.
The northeast part of Pacific Ocean is one of the richest fishery spots on this globe. The fertility is brought by the rivers that contains rich minerals and nutrition for creatures.
It seemed that a variety of creatures were living in the shallows around the cape. Sometimes sea-lions have a rest on the rocks under the cliff.
Because of the harsh and cold wind from the ocean, only bamboo grasses can be growing on the cape like other coastline of Hokkaido.
Have you ever heard about Shiretoko Peninsula of Hokkaido listed on the World Natural Heritage of UNESCO ?
The mountains of that area can be seen from Cape Notori.
