The Shiretoko National Park is located in the Shiretoko Peninsula, the northeastern tip of Hokkaido, Japan surrounded by the Sea of Okhotsk and has been designated a World Natural Heritage Site since 2005 on the ground that it has an important ecological significance in North Asia. In the summer time, you can see beautiful mountainous scenery and many wild lives in the peninsula. One day in mid-August, trees, tourists, and completely cloudless blue sky in twilight hour gave us an impressive image.

Location: The Shiretoko National Park, Japan
