Kushiro Marsh is traversed by an immense number of rivers and dotted with countless lakes. This scenery is best described as a kingdom of water. Local rivers and lakes include the Akan River, Lake Toro, Lake Shirarutoro and Lake Takkobu. Among these, the Kushiro River, which begins its journey at Lake Kussharo, flows toward the Pacific Ocean while snaking its way through the area’s lush wetlands. This sight appears almost mythological in nature and the sheer scale is a wonder for visitors of all ages.
