Notice of Bear Sightings

In Hokkaido, signs warning of recent bear sightings are posted near the location of the actual sightings. Bears are seen in vegetable fields, near fruit orchards, and occasionally near homes. Bear sightings typically increase beginning in July.

Please take special care when climbing Mt. Ashibetsu. Attach a bell to your backpack, do not throw out your food, and use common sense when climbing.
