If you are interested in nature beauty, Kushiro marshland national park is must to visit. Kushiro marshland national park is the largest marshland in Japan and is registered wetland under the Ramsar convention. The area originally was a part of sea. The accumulation of peat started 3000 years ago and formed the marshland. The Kushiro river and its tributaries run through the area and 3 big lakes are located. About 80％ of the peat land is a low moor dominated by a reed and sedge community and alder forest. The plant community in the wetland has a variety of species including Marsh Jacob's Ladder, a relics of the ice-age. There are 26 species of mammals and 170 species of birds. Japanese cranes, Steller's sea eagles and Shiberian salamanders.
Thus, you have chances to come across these unique species during walking and enjoy untouched nature in Kushiro marshland.
I will guide you to one walking tour, 3 observatories including best-kept secret spots, and nice local lunch.
If any requests, I will also take you to Kushiro river canoeing in the marsh land.
This tour is also available during winter season however, some observatories may be closed in winter season.
