When I read Tweets, Kiritappu Wetland National Trust seemed to be popular.
Kiritappu Wetland has the third largest area, 3,168ha, after Kushiro Wetland (釧路湿原) and Sarobetsu Plain (サロベツ原野) in Japan. The wetland was designed as the Ramsar Convention Wetland in 1993. This is called the wetland of flowers (花の湿原), the Corydalis ambigua and the Skunk cabbage bloom in May, 400 kinds of the flowers such as the Cotton grass and the Yezo-licorice and the Yezo-gentian are seen from June to August. Biwase Wooden Path (琵琶瀬木道) with 500 m in total length and Nakanohama Wooden Path (仲の浜木道) with 700 m in total length are built beside the facility, and tourists can observe the wetland along the wooden paths. In addition, if the tourists want to go a little far, they lent a bicycle and the tourists can use the bicycle freely.
