Kushiro National Park釧路湿原国立公園
Rare flora and fauna such as menyanthes, Yezo rhododendron (Ledum palustre) and the Yezo red squirrel can be found in this national park which is also Japan’s largest wetland “Kushiro Marsh.” There are five observation decks including Hoso’oka Observatory and six wooden walkways so it is possible to comfortably walk on the wetlands and lakeside enjoying bird watching. In addition, part of the promenade is barrier free and can be used for wheelchairs and strollers. It is located in the area of the Onnenai Visitor Center, where Kushiro Wetland National Park seasonal attractions are introduced and you can borrow binoculars, wheel chairs and snowshoes.

Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
