道東地方を代表する観光地域として1934年以来の長い歴史を持つこの国立公園は、阿寒・摩周・屈斜路の美しいカルデラ湖を中心に、太古の面影を残す原生林や噴煙たなびく活火山、アイヌの伝統文化を受け継ぐコタン、川湯をはじめとする豊富な温泉など、多彩な見どころが点在する。

十勝・釧路・オホーツクの各方面から効率よく訪れることができるので、道東の観光ルートに是非とも組み込みたいところだ。

Picturesque caldera lakes, attractive onsen and lakeside Ainu kotan (villages), Akan-Mashu National Park contains many of Eastern Hokkaido’s classic natural wonders. Akanko Onsen’s lakeside Ainu kotan on the western part of the park is a pleasant base for hiking in the volcanic mountains and mysterious marimo viewing for Churui-to. On the eastern side of the park, the town of Teshikaga is accessible by train from Kushiro and Abashiri.
