Wolf in Hokkaido !

by Kazu

Until the end of Edo Era, there were wolves in Hokkaido. Wolves in the main land of Japan were exterminated before distinction of the ones in Hokkaido.
Wolves in Hokkaido were living in this mountainous area. After human beings conquered this island and kicked away the indigenous people in Hokkaido, Ainu, wolves in Hokkaido were exterminated.
The name of the mountain near Lake Nukabira is Mt. Upepesanke. It is the namesake of the language spoken by Ainu.
