Akanko Onsen - Tancho Kushiro Airport
Use Akan Airport Liner for a
comfortable, convenient photo tour of
Lake Akan and eastern Hokkaido

Ezo sika deer majestically roam across fields of grass, as delightful flowers bloom throughout the Kushiro Wetlands.
As the sun peeks over the horizon, painting the Pacific Ocean deep red, virgin forests come to life.
Magnificent seas of clouds spread across Lake Kussharo, while Lake Mashu is veiled in wondrous mists. The sunrise at Lake Akan is reminiscent of 'Diamond Mt. Fuji', when the sun crests Mt. Fuji at sunrise or sunset, appearing like a shining diamond in its crown. Ice floes on the Sea of Okhotsk portray the power of nature.
These are Eastern Hokkaido's most photogenic spots.
Embark on a journey to enjoy the picturesque wildlife together with the culture of Kushiro and Lake Akan.

Shiretoko World Natural Heritage

Shiretoko World Natural Heritage

Shiretoko National Park was designated as Japan’s 22nd national park in 1964. In 2005, it was further registered as a World Natural Heritage Site. The park spans from the center of the Shiretoko Peninsula to the tip of Cape Shiretoko, including some 40,000 hectares of land and the surrounding ocean regions. Diverse natural environments such as drift ice-inundated shores, the peaks of the Shiretoko Mountains, virgin forests, mountain streams, lakes and marshes are woven together into an unforgettably beautiful landscape. This captivating, untouched nature is also home to Shiretoko’s abundant wildlife. With a little luck, visitors may spot the brown bear, which is only found in Hokkaido, or designated endangered species of birds on the Ministry of the Environment Red List, such as the Blakiston’s fish owl or spectacled guillemot (a type of waterfowl).

When you stand on the start line of this road you must think it is most likely that “if you continue along this road all the way, thereafter certainly you will find the sky”.

Bihoro Pass

Bihoro Pass

The pass is located 525m above sea level and divides Bihoro town and Abashiri city on route 243. Bihiro pass offers a breathtaking view of Lake Kussharo. The absolutely stunning view of the sunrise through a sea of clouds will provide memories to last a lifetime. In 1953, a very popular movie, “Kimi no Na wa” (Your name), was shot here. Access: 46 min. drive from JR Mashu station. (43.6 km)

Kushiro Shitsugen

Kushiro Shitsugen

With a design based on the tockstock that grows in the wetland, this building is reminiscent of an old-style eastern European castle. The observatory features a scale-model reproduction of the wetland, a wood carving of a 2-m-long ito-fish that was caught in Kushiro Wetland, and a large-scale LCD monitor on which live images of the wetland and "The four seasons of the wetland" can be viewed.

Nusamai Bridge

Nusamai Bridge

The European style bridge that crosses the lower reaches of the Kushiro River is one of Hokkaido's three most famous bridges, which include Sapporo's Toyohira Bridge and Asahikawa's Asahi Bridge. The guardrail features four statues of women by four sculptors that depict the four seasons. At dusk, the Port of Kushiro dazzles as it takes on the hues of the setting sun, while at night the river's surface is lit up by the lights on the bridge and by the lights of the city. The bridge and streetlights also exude a magical aura in the summer fog. This symbol of Kushiro city with its many faces can be walked across or simply gazed at from afar.

Lake Akan(winter)

Lake Akan(winter)

Frost flowers are formed when feather-like ice crystals fold over layer upon layer, like the petals of a rose. Depending on the conditions of formation, sometimes there is only a single layer, which is known as "frost wings". More delicate than the finest glass, each is a work of immaculate beauty... truly as if nature is creating art. However, these flowers are so fragile that a single breath will melt them in the blink of an eye. This fragility is why you never see frost flowers on a windy day. The rare chance to partake in this ephemeral beauty is a miracle in itself.

Lake Akan(summer)

Lake Akan(summer)

Mt Hakutosan lies south of the Lake Akan onsen (hot spring) district, reaching a peak height of 950 m. From spring to autumn, the Akan Kohan Ski Resort situated here turns into hiking trails for nature lovers, offering points of interest such as wildflower fields and "bokke" mud volcano vents. Heading east from the peak leads to an observation point with a breathtaking view of Mt Oakan-dake and Lake Akan. On summer mornings, you might be so lucky as to experience the "unkai" (sea of clouds) from the mountaintop. The return trip takes about two hours.

Akan International Crane Center

Akan International Crane Center

This facility is unique to Japan in its purposes to conserve the tancho crane while providing research and information about these magnificent birds. Within the facility are informative displays, and outdoors visitors may observe tancho cranes being raised in a situation similar to nature throughout the year. From November to March, artificial feeding is carried out at the neighboring "Branch Tancho Observation Center", with as many as 300 wild tancho cranes visiting on a busy day.

オンネトー

Lake Onneto

About 20km southwest of Akanko Onsen, Onneto is a small lake, about 2.5km around. The map shows it inside Ashoro Town, Tokachi, but it lies inside the Akan National Park next to Akanko Onsen, and is under the shadow of Mt. Meakandake.
