Red-crowned Crane Observation Center (タンチョウ観察センター)

4.0

Reference/Local/Exhibition/Literature Museum

This facility is connected to the Akan International Crane Center [GRUS]. The Akan area has long been a center for winter crane preservation and research, and is a center for observing various birds and crane varieties including red-capped tancho cranes. The building has displays of maps, photographs, and research materials on the birds to study at your leisure. The center is open from November through March, during the wild cranes' stopping season. The feeding area in front of the center carries out artificial feeding processes. There are panel displays teaching about the lifestyle and ecology of the tancho red-capped crane, and are a perfect way to get more familiar with these registered Special Natural Monuments.

          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.
