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
日本最大の広さを持つ釧路湿原。その魅力はたくさんありますが、私の一番のおすすめは、釧路川の川下りカヌーです。塘路湖の湖岸からカヌーは出発しました。塘路湖からアレキナイ川という釧路川の支流をしばらく進むと、釧路川の本流に出ました。細岡というところにあるカヌーステーションに到着しました。約１０km、1時間40分のカヌーは、人生で最高の体験のひとつになりました。 more »Kushiro Marsh is the largest in Japan. There are many charms, but my best recommendation is the river down canoe of Kushiro River. The canoe departed from the shore of Lake Kushiro. After going from Lake Kushiro to the tributaries of the Kushiro River called the Alequinai River for a while, we went to the main stream of the Kushiro River. We arrived at a canoe station in Hosooka. Canoeing, about 10km and 1 hour and 40 minutes, was one of the best experiences of my life.
カヌーで湿原を散策しました。ラッキーなことにシカ、オジロワシ、鶴、ミンクなど沢山の動物を間近に見れ感動しました。湿原行くなら絶対カヌーをお勧めします。 more »We walked around the wetlands by canoe. Fortunately, I was impressed to see many animals such as deer, white eagles, cranes, and minks up close. If you're going to the wetlands, we recommend absolute canoeing.
