When I read Tweets, Sarobetsu Wetland Center seems to be popular.

Water separation machines (vessel type) used for reclamation are really displayed, and the tourists can learn the history of fight with peat. At the Sarobetsu Wetland Center, there are an exhibition room introducing animals and plants of the Sarobetsu Wetland, a souvenir shop, a restaurant and a restroom.
