Inspirock Rating:
3.9/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web
A train ride across the marshes will take you to Kushiro Shitsugen National Park, Japan’s largest undeveloped wetland area, spreading across 269 sq km (104 sq mi). After crossing many steel bridges and wooden planks, you'll reach a strangely shaped metal area--the Kushiro marsh observatory--giving you a panoramic view of the expanse of wetland. Famous for its population of red-crested white cranes, a symbol of Japan, the marsh habitat provides the only wild home for this species, which nearly became extinct early in the 20th century. You can see spotted deer and birds of prey as you hike through the national park, as well as steam-engine spotting or taking a canoe ride. By using our Kushiro-cho vacation planner, you can arrange your visit to Kushiro Shitsugen National Park and other attractions in Kushiro-cho.

  • View the wetland on the senmō main line, the middle looks out the window. Unfortunately on a rainy day, but still Windows filled with green and Marsh was a spectator. No human hands and not impressed. If I wanted to watch sunny bog!...

  • Marsh formed between AKAN River and the Kushiro River Kushiro in eastern Hokkaido coast plain, is the principal. Extremely vast, spanning several cities and towns. Several observation facilities are located around, none have featured the goodness of each.

  • From Kushiro Station aboard norokko-go. Norokko-the Marsh-side seat reservation is recommended. Down the River in a canoe saw head and deer in the wild. Red-crowned crane is quite likely to see. See lucky. Take canoe rides in the summer, away from direct sunlight, since sunscreen is necessary.
