Encompassing Kushiro River and Japan’s largest marshlands, the park is an important habitant for many species of flora and fauna, of which the dancing Red-Crown Cranes are its most famous residents. While flocking in greatest number in winter, the cranes can in fact been seen throughout the year while horse-riding and canoeing are popular way to explore the park.
