If you cross the Shiretoko Pass, you can reach Rausu Town from Shari Town on the other side of the Shiretoko Peninsula. However, Shiretoko pass will be closed November to May every year, so during closing the pass, you can go through The Konpoku pass and drive Route 244. If you will come from south, keep driving along the sea from Shirbetsu town to Rausu town.
