  • I went hoping to gauge network the can't see the Red-crowned crane was very disappointing. It would be best as a migratory birds flying around. But Hokkaido Red-crowned crane is a migratory bird, not because I saw in nemuro. It is very clean.

  • 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.

Where to stay in Kushiro

For those that do spend the night here, Kushiro has a welcome set of accommodations, usually business class hotels with a pool, a restaurant, and simple rooms. Some particularly budget-friendly hotels sit as close as possible to the main train station, while the train station district as a whole contains the vast majority of what's available here.
