Park Etiquette

In order for everyone to have a pleasant experience, the visitors to the national parks are advised to respect nature and observe the following:

  • Do not throw away any trash.
  • Do not pick wild flowers/damage plants.
  • Do not feed wild animals.
  • No hunting or fishing.
  • No smoking while walking.
  • Bonfires / recreational fires are only permitted in designated areas.

Please observe the Rishiri rules below when climbing Mt. Rishiri:

Use a plastic bag for toilet

Plastic bags for toilets can be purchased at a hotel and inn.There are also special booths provided for the portable toilets around the hiking trails, as well as a collection booth to throw away used portable toilets at the start of the hiking trail.

Place a cap on walking sticks and staffs.

The sharp tip of a walking stick or staff digs up the fragile soil and promotes erosion. When using a staff, be sure to place a cap on the tip.

Do not sit or step on plants.

To prevent damage to the plants and to stop soil erosion, be sure to stay on the trail.
