Wonderland Activities in “Rivers & Marsh”

Eastern Hokkaido has a lot of rivers which flow from the inland mountains to the Sea of Okhotsk and Pacific Ocean. Most of the are habitats of freshwater fish such as Japanese char, masu trout, Salvelinus malma, and Japanese huchen thanks to the abundant water. There’re also many marshlands located mainly on the coastal side of Pacific Ocean including the biggest marshland in Japan, Kushiro Marsh. These rivers and marshlands are great venues for fishing, canoeing, and other outdoor activities.

Trekking, Nature Guided Tours

Let’s take a tour guided by an expert of the nature if you wish to fully enjoy Mother Nature in eastern Hokkaido. Trekking tours in Kushiro Marsh are highly rated since you can observe the wildlife and explore the area which is usually hard to enter. The popular venues of nature guided walk tours are Kushiro Marsh, Lake Shikaribetsu, and Lake Akan. Looking into the river to observe freshwater fish is simply interesting, and it excites you more to walk into the forests which are strictly prohibited to enter unless you’re accompanied with a designated guide. Some operators let you customize the content according to your preferences.

EASTERNFISHING GUIDEHOKKAIDO

Fishing

It’s nice to go stream fishing in eastern Hokkaido from spring to autumn. You can catch a variety of freshwater fish such as Japanese char which is also called “Ezo Iwana”, masu trout which spends its lifetime in the river, rainbow trout which is found all over Japan, and Japanese huchen which is Japan’s biggest freshwater fish. The guides, who know the rivers in eastern Hokkaido inside out, will take you to the spot where fish gather around. They provide a rental service of all the tools needed including rods, reels, lures, bait, so all you have to do is to bring yourself. There’s also a package plan that comes with a canoeing tour as a set.
