Fulfilling Camping Ground -Kabutonuma Swamp in Toyotomi-

October 25th, 2015

Kabutonuma Swamp (兜沼) in the northern part of Kamisarobetsu-genya (上サロベツ原野) is located in the north part of Sarobetsu Plain (サロベツ原野), Rishiri‐Rebun‐Sarobetsu National Park (利尻礼文サロベツ国立公園). The perimeter of the swamp is about 3.5 km. Its shape of the swamp looked like a Japanese war helmet (Kabuto), and it was named. The area around Kabutonuma Swamp is called Kabutonuma Park (兜沼公園), and birds such as waterfowls can be watched, but unfortunately I could not come close to the swamp. There are Kabutonuma Park Camping Ground (兜沼公園キャンプ場) and Kabutonuma Park Auto Camping Site (兜沼公園オートキャンプ場) in the site, too.
