Lonely Swamps in Ranch -Mokeuni Swamp in Sarufutsu-

July 11th, 2017

Mokeuni Swamp (モケウニ沼) is a freshwater lake in Sarufutsu and the perimeter of the swamp is about 3.4 km. It comprises three swamps, Mokeuni Swamp, Onuma Swamp (小沼) and First Onuma Swamp (第一小沼) and is a part of Asajino Wetland. A wooden path with about 350 m in length is built from a parking lot to the shore of the swamp, and tourists can reach to the swamp for about 10 minutes. Mokeuni means "a swamp with dead trees" in Ainu language, and it may be connected with brown water. A view of a ranch and the Onuma Swamp from a road of a parking lot side is comfortable, too. A parking lot and a restroom are provided in a site. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge. There is Esanuka Wild Flower Garden (エサヌカ原生花園) on the north side of the swamp, too.
