  • Great place... You can watch hundreds of Japanese Cranes walking and flying around... Excellent destination for the photographers who love to capture wildlife...
  • The best and most equipped observation point for the area. Admission fee. Limited information, timetables of feeding of the animals. Poor knowledge of English. There is a small restaurant with pretty limited hours.

  • It is the perfect place to be hours photographing the beautiful red-crowned cranes. It is the meeting point of many photographers of nature, so better arrive soon to pick a good site. Another point where see cranes in freedom is Tsurumidai, better get about 14:30 is when they give them to eat. Only time you will see 4 or 5 of them. In both places whooper Swans can be, also.
