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.

Kushiro Shitsugen National Park Reviews
釧路湿原展望台から散策路のあおさぎ広場を経て釧路湿原道路（鶴居軌道跡）に降りる。あおさぎ広場からは人間に会わない。 そして鳥たちの密度がどんどん濃くなっていく。 真っ直ぐな釧路湿原道路に降りるとノビタキの密度が半端ない。 10m行くと次のノビタキが現れる。 限りなく幸せ。 もちろんノビタキだけではない。 オオルリ、キビタキ、センダイムシクイ、エゾムシクイ、オオジュリン、アオジ、ベニマシコ、カッコウ... more »From Kushiro Wetland Observatory, take the Aozage Plaza of the walking path and get off at Kushiro Wetland Road (Tsurui Track Ruins). I don't see people from Aozagi Square. And, the density of birds becomes thicker and thicker. The density of Novitaki is not half-hearted when getting off on the straight Kushiro wetland road. The next Novitaki appears when going 10m. Infinitely happy. Of course, it is not only Novitaki. Oorri, Kibitaki, Sendemeshiki, Ezomushikui, Ojurin, Aogi, Benimacico, Cuckoo, Tsudori, Akagera, i didn't have much time, so it's a shame that we ended up with a little glimpse of the entrance. Will come again.
Good for photographer or nature lover, can watch wild birds , deer, fox in close distance. Also can take canoe to travel. more »
