This is a special plan where you can observe and photograph birds while riding in a canoe.

It takes about 17km(Kushiro River longest course) long and takes 3 hours 30 minutes to 4 hours slowly from the middle stream of Kushiro Marsh to the downstream area.

* When the wind is strong, it will guide you to the upper part of the marshland, which is less affected by wind.

The course features the Kushiro River as it makes it way downstream through the Kushiro Marsh. When it is sunny and there are few trees,  the sky will look even wider and you can feel the magnificent landscape. Also, you can see well the meandering of the Kushiro River from the hilltop observation deck. There is a floodgate called “Rocks locking gate” that was built for the flood control of the Kushiro River which makes us to feel the history of the region.

It is built stately in the magnificent landscape. it will become one of your most beautiful memories.

Note : When if its strong windy day, sometimes it’s difficult to get to the Rocks locking gate. in that case, we will offer alternative course for the same price and same time.
