[Onuma Kohan Marshland in Nanae] Skunk Cabbage and Narcissus Can Be Seen in Early Spring

Onuma Kohan Marshland

Onuma Kohan Marshland (大沼湖畔湿地) is a wetland in the east side of the Lake Onuma (大沼), Nanae town located in the northern part of Hakodate city, and is relatively near Nagareyama Onsen Station. The lake has been registered under the Ramsar Convention since 2012. This place is known for skunk cabbage and narcissus in an early spring, and Mt. Komagadake can be seen on the lakeshore. Here is one of tourist spots for cycling, so there is not sightseeing facility containing a parking lot at all. Admission free.

Onuma Quasi-National Park

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. It is also famous for fall foliage, and has been chosen as one of The 100 Best Fall Foliage Spots in Japan (日本紅葉の名所100選). When the Mt. Komagatake erupted from 50,000 to 30,000 years ago, a river was dammed by flowing mud flood, and those lakes were created. Wetlands have been registered under the Ramsar Convention since 2012, and wild waterfowls such as Goose and Duck rest their wings on the surface of the lake. Read More

Look of Onuma Kohan Marshland

An entrance of the Onuma Kohan Marshland is along Onuma Park Line (大沼公園線 Hokkaido Road 338), and narrow wooden paths of about 110 m length are built on the wetland. It takes about 3 minutes from the entrance to the lakeshore on foot. The skunk cabbage and the narcissus can be observed along the wooden paths in the early spring. The Mt. Komagadake and some small islands can be seen on the lakeshore, too. Visitors may go a round for about 15 minutes on foot.
