I Do Not Know Whether People Can Come Near Swamp -Poro Swamp in Sarufutsu-

July 14th, 2017

Poro Swamp (ポロ沼) is a brackish water lake in Sarufutsu. The perimeter of the swamp is about 5.7 km. Whistling Swan and Bean Goose rest their wing. Japanese Huchen and Candy Trout are fished at the confluence of the Poro Swamp and Sarufutsu River (猿払川), many anglers visit here. Japanese nutmegs grew thick around the swamp, and I could not come close to the swamp. I took photos from the Sarufutsu River. There is not facility.
