Tatsukobu Yumegaoka Walks has wooden paths and paths, and some paths are badly drained, so you should wear your shoes that you would not mind getting dirty. It took me about 40 minutes to walk because of very uneven paths. I got very tired especially on the last steep stairway. But a view from the Yumegaoka Observatory has refreshed me completely. Unfortunately, I was not able to see a running train thorugh the Kushiro-Shitsugen Wetland, so I want to see the train next time. By the way, Lake Takkobubuma can be hardly seen. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge.
