Great place to watch the sunset and catch nesting birds
Jun 2019 • Family
As mentioned in my title, this is a great place to watch the sunset and also to catch a glimpse of nesting birds on the rock face.

Oronko Rock-a steep climb, a 360 view
Jun 2017 • Family
60m high, flat-topped, a commanding presence in Utoro Harbor. You do not have to drive far to get there: it is on way to the sightseeing cruise boats. The Oronko (or Oronkoiwa) Rock is one of the “Eight Scenic Spots of Shiretoko”.

The summit affords a 360 view. The city behind you, the Shiretoko mountains in the distance, and the blue waters of the Sea of Okhotsk at you feet. We saw it on our way to the sightseeing ship Aurora. Did not climb to the top, but did enjoy the sight and sound of very large flocks of bird wheeling and swooping in and around the rock. The stairs are steep, the view, if you have the inclination to make the climb, very worthwhile.

Birds nesting all around

Fabulous at sunset. Gulls bringing in grass for nests just below the path and all down the sea-side of the rock. Well worth the climb
