Kunne-poru means black cave in the native Ainu language. The mouth of this giant gave gapes wide amidst the sheer cliffs of the Shiretoko coastline. A deep cave, true to its name the inner depths are dark and impenetrable from the outside. Facing the sea, the face can only be seen by riding a sightseeing boat from Utoro. The surrounding area is a habitat for brown bears and if you are lucky, you'll be able to see some from the boat.
