Onuma Quasi-National Park (大沼国定公園) is a quasi-national park at the foot of Mt. Komagatake (駒ヶ岳) in the southern part of Hokkaido, and is between Nanae town, Shikabe town and Mori town. Its area is 9,083 ha. The park has been designated as the quasi-national park since 1958, and 2 million tourists come. It consists of the Mt. Komagatake of 1,131 m elevation, an active volcano, Lake Ounma (大沼湖), Lake Konuma (小沼湖), Junsai Swamp (蓴菜沼), and beautiful scneries are highlights. The Onuma Quasi-National Park has been chosen as one of The 3 New Views of Japan (新日本三景) together with Miho-no-Matsubara (三保の松原) in Shizuoka prefecture and Yabakei (耶馬渓) in Oita prefecture since 1915.

Look of Oiwa-enchi Park
An entrance of the Oiwa-enchi Park is along Onuma Park Line (大沼公園線 Hokkaido Road 338), and a mark is the public restroom. The walks of about 200 m length are built at the cape jutting into the lake, and a forest of Scouring Rush and wild birds such as a Black Woodpecker can be seen along the walks like an animal trail. The end point of the walks is on the lakeshore, and the south side of the lake can be seen there. A floating pier is on the lakeshore. But it is ban entering the floating pier. I do not know what here is, but I think that nature of the Lake Onuma can be enjoyed here.
