Onnenai Boardwalk (温根内木道)


Other Natural Terrain

This is a wooden pathway that starts from the Onnenai Visitor Center at the western end of the Kushiro Wetlands. There is a two-kilometer barrier-free wooden boardwalk that allows you to stroll through the Kushiro Wetlands, observing the flora and fauna of the changing seasons. Also leading to the promenade of Kushiro Marsh Observatory, it is a very popular place to enjoy a gentle stroll. It takes approximately one hour to go around once. Depending on the season, you can enjoy seeing flowers such as bogbean, cotton grass and bog rosemary as you go around wetlands of reed, sedges and peat moss. In addition, you can see wild birds, and Heike fireflies from July to August.

          Hokkaido Areas


          Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. 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.
