Kushiro

Kushiro (H) is a port city in eastern Hokkaido. The city is well known for Kushiro Shitsugen, Japan's largest marshland. Dedicated as a national park, the marshland is home to rare, wild Japanese red-crown cranes (tancho) that can be observed by tourists during the winter months.

As a major fishing port city, Kushiro is naturally renowned for the fresh seafood that can be enjoyed at it restaurants. There is also a public fish market a short walk from the station. Although located over 50 kilometers inland from central Kushiro, Lake Akan is still within the borders of the expansive municipality.
