YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN SUCH
Bear Watching Bus
The brown bear is the largest land animal in Japan, inhabiting solely in Hokkaido.
They are on top of the wildlfe ecosystem on the island of Hokkaido. We offer visitors
chances to see and feel the way they live in the wild.
Unlike in zoo or in bear reserve, here you can see them living in a real forest so close and
in safety. This facility has been made possible at Sahoro Resort where wild brown bears
inhabit in the surrounding areas.
