Drift Ice part2 流氷その2

Hokkaido is the lowest latitude place in the world where drift ice can be seen. The three main areas where you can see drift ice are Monbetsu, Abashiri, and Shiretoko, where there are many tourist facilities and activities. When the drift ice arrives, various wild animals also start to show their faces. You can see seals and Steller’s sea lions with their cute round bodies and round eyes, as well as white-tailed sea eagles and Steller’s sea eagles, both of which are national natural treasures. The clione (a type of sea-slug) known as the “angel of drift ice,” is another animal that can only be seen here.
