Low Kiritappu Wetland and High Cape Kiritappu Can Be Seen -Kiritappu Wetland Center in Hamanaka-

April 5th, 2016

Kiritappu Wetland Center (霧多布湿原センター) is on a hill in the west side of Kiritappu Wetland (霧多布湿原) in Hamanaka town located between Kushiro city and Nemuro city, and visitors can look over the whole wetland. There are a cafe, a souvenir shop and a restroom at the facility and they guide wetland. That is probably a admission-paid. They rent outdoor goods, and the visitors can rent a mountain bike for JPY 1,000 and boots or binoculars to observe the wetland. Yachibozu Wooden Path (やちぼうず木道) is built at the foot of the Kiritappu Wetland Center. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge.

When I read Tweets, Kiritappu Wetland Center seems to be popular.

Yachibozu Wooden Path (やちぼうず木道) has about 300 m in total length, and visitors can walk through thick marshland. There are 3 places with the wooden path, Okubiwase Wildbird Park (奥琵琶瀬野鳥公園), Kiritappu Wetland National Trust (霧多布ナショナル・トラスト) and Kiritappu Wetland Center in the Kiritappu Wetland, and the visitors can best experience the marshland in the 3 places. Yachibozu that was named after Yachibozu Wooden Path grows here and there. A few birdwatchers seem to visit here because of a quiet place.
